The Bridge : Linking Town and County

Dungarvan, Co Waterford

Bridge built from Portland Stone

The Devonshire Bridge in Dungarvan, Co Waterford was built in the 1830s by Lord Devonshire, it is a single arched bridge and was built of Portland Stone which was imported from Cheshire in England.

Prior to this time, the town of Dungarvan could only be reached by ferry from the adjoining neighbourhood of Abbeyside, where most of the working class lived, or otherwise they crossed by horse and cart at a nearby causeway, when the tide was low.   I would say that would have been rather a dangerous crossing, especially in winter, and the bridge was a very welcome addition to the town.

The bridge still stands today, as solid as when it was first built, and when we strolled over it on Saturday evening at high tide, the local youngsters were enjoying diving backwards off the bridge into the cold water below!

Looking at the harbour from the bridge

The harbour at the mouth of the Colligan river, just down from the bridge, shelters many small boats, and there are many restaurants and cafes along the quayside to welcome visitors, in the daytime or night time.

Irish Beaches on a Windy Saturday: A Word a Week Challenge : Wind

These photos were taken a few months ago on Clonea Strand near Dungarvan in Co Waterford.   As you see the beach was fairly deserted, may have had something to do with the fact that the wind was blowing straight in from the sea, and it looked like it was about to rain.

I like being by the sea, but prefer it on a calm day, when the sun is shining!
