Six-arch rubble stone road bridge, c.1800, probably originally over a river.

A picturesque bridge representing an important element of the late eighteenth- or early nineteenth-century civil engineering or transport heritage of New Ross having originally been intended either as a crossing over a now lost watercourse, or to support an elevated road over an undulating topography with the arches accommodating marine stores. Exhibiting a traditional construction in unrefined local fieldstone with barely-refined dressings, the bridge makes a pleasing visual impression of rustic quality in the landscape.
