I got talking to an old local who reliably informed me that this bridge had in fact nothing to do with Cromwell. It originates from the Gaelic word for moustache which i now forget but the shape of the bridge makes sense when you see it. It's hard to imagine that a stone arch can survive all that time but it has. In times past i was told that both banks would have been built up with earth and gravel to make it easier to traverse it. With the nearby stone circle and the tidal estuary of the Finnihy river, the imagination can fill in some of the blanks in relation to it's importance in bygone days. God knows what settlements lived here as all the historical records have disappeared.....just close your eyes and feel the ancient spirits.
