Description

Seven-arch limestone road bridge, built c.1780, over Killaclogher River. Round arches having dressed limestone voussoirs and with random rubble to spandrels and walls. Triangular ashlar cutwaters with triangular concrete plinths supporting pipe work to north-west elevation. Random rubble parapets with half-round rubble copings. Random rubble limestone walls leading up to bridge.

Appraisal

This handsome limestone bridge is still in use and carries traffic over the Killaclogher River. The contrast between the dressed limestone voussoirs and random rubble parapet gives the bridge a pleasant appearance in the rural setting.
