The Oldest Bridge in Ireland

The Oldest Bridge in Ireland

The oldest bridge in Ireland is claimed to be this bridge built by St. Patrick in the 6th century. It’s on the grounds of Moville Boutique Hostel in Co. Donegal.

I say “claimed” because there are others such as the Esker Bridge in Dublin and this one in Trim.

Who knows? The hostel is lovely and well worth a visit so you might as well visit the bridge while you’re there!

The sun peeks out over Killaloe

The sun peeks out over Balina, Co Tipperary

Looking out over the River Shannon from the Balina side to the town of Killaloe on the west bank of the river.

Hmm, I do believe this is the first photo I have posted in Tipperary, and half the photo is in Co Clare!

At the Inniscarra Dam

At the Inniscarra Dam

Last week was my first time visiting the Inniscarra Dam on the River Lee. It’s only 10km from where I live but the entrance to the car park is on a winding country road that’s easy to miss.The dam itself is difficult to see from the road too putting it out of mind so I think most Cork people don’t think they can visit this beautiful riverside walk.

Ballydehob’s 12 Arch Bridge

Ballydehob's 12 Arch Bridge

In 2004 I was chased by swans on the River Bawnaknockane that runs through Ballydehob, but luckily in 2017 when I took this photo there was no sign of them. 🙂
