Beautiful 18th century engineering in a local style

Scarawalsh Bridge was built in 1795 and is a well-known landmark located between Enniscorthy and Ferns in County Wexford. This 6 arch humpback road bridge spans the river Slaney and is located in the townland of Scarawalsh. It was constructed by the Oriel Brothers of Hampshire and is regarded as a particularly important example of late eighteenth-century civil engineering for its beauty and also by its traditional construction. Scarawalsh, pronounced locally as ‘Scarawelsh’, means Walsh’s shallow ford.
