Brook Lodge Co. Galway
Single Arch bridge built c. 1770
Killererin Heritage Society
Single-arch bridge, built c.1770, carrying demesne road across Abbert river. It has piers and walls of roughly-faced limestone, with margined hammer-dressed voussoirs and wrought-iron railings to parapets, terminated by rubble limestone piers.
This bridge forms part of an interesting and complete range of demesne structures associated with Brook Lodge country house, the others being outbuildings and gateway at one end of the bridge, demesne roads and an icehouse, as well as the roofless shell of the country house itself. The varied treatment of the stonework of the bridge enhances its appearance.
