Description

Cut stone railway bridge, built c. 1860, carrying Corbally Road on a north-south axis over the Limerick to Sligo Great Southern and Western Railway line. Segmental single arch bridge of coursed and squared rock-faced limestone. Tooled to the soffit with voussoirs to the arches having drafted margins. Squared coursed and snecked rock-faced facing stone to abutments. Capping stones to the parapets have an exaggerated rock face also with drafted margins.

Appraisal

A well-proportioned and well-executed stone bridge displaying an array of stone masonry skills, while still serving its original function and enhancing the appeal of the area.
