Freestanding cast-iron vent pipe, erected c.1900, comprising a fluted pedestal with moulded necking, and cylindrical shaft over having splayed saw tooth-profiled parapet. Located to the northeast end of Rochfortbridge.
This vent pipe is of social significance as an historical reminder of the sanitary/sewerage system that was developed in many Irish towns and villages during the late nineteenth and the early twentieth-century . This vent pipe now forms a subtle feature in the streetscape of Rochfortbridge and is of some design merit, combining a practical function with a public statement of design quality.
