The bridge with 15 arches built in 1855 in only 2 years and is well worth taking in the view. There is a story that the builder used cotton wool as a foundation.

This is a bridge I use to walk over after being to night clubs and spent my childhood on it’s a landmark for the town of Drogheda and links the north and south

What makes that bridge special is its story. So if you'll pass by Drogheda, spend some time to sit, see the bridge and read the story behind it. You'll certainly love it.

One of the great sights of Drogheda. If you are going by rail you can't miss it and if you are in town you can't miss it as it towers over everything. A great engineering feat.

All you can do is view it or travel over it on the train but the history of it is worth a bit of investigation. One for the architecture nuts!

From the footbridge you get a nice view of the Railway Bridge that travels between Dublin & Belfast along with getting a look at the local Port. I even saw an Otter in this river further up stream one day as well

The main Belfast railway line runs across this multi-span bridge. Its a super looking bridge to view from a distance but that's about it.
