Description

Railway bridge, built c.1895, over disused galway to Clifden railway line. Single segmental arch having rock-faced voussoirs, rubble walling to spandrels and parapets, moulded string course between arch and parapets, and margined rock-faced coping stones to parapets. Bridge gives access over former railway line to Lissoughter Lodge.

Appraisal

This is a finely constructed railway bridge, accomplished detailing evident in the quality of the string course and copings. It stands as a reminder of the now disused railway line from Galway City to Clifden.
