Bridge on a small narrow country road
It would be so easy to miss this bridge's parapet while driving along this road (I did and I was looking out for it!). The bridge was originally built to allow the road to traverse The Cork and Kinsale Junction Railway which closed in 1931. Unlike almost all the other bridges along the route of this long defunct railway, looking over the parapet showed that despite the fact the bridge was open, it was no longer in use by local farmers, having been fenced off and debris strewn on both side blocking a clear thoroughfare.
