The NE-SW bridge (Wth 7.4m) over the Owenroe or Moynalty River is not represented on the Down Survey maps (1655-8) but the bridge may have been built before the end of the century on the route from Kells to Co. Cavan. It has six rounded arches (at N: Wth 2.4m) but the bridge was widened and the NW side (Wth 4m) has now settled lower than the SE (Wth 3.4m). There are five break-waters on the upstream side and the parapet is level but there are no pedestrian refuges. Compiled by: Michael Moore Date of upload: 9 April 2019
