The keystone of arch of the bridge has a date inscribed on it 184? which coincides with the era of the Irish Potato Famine in which poor people were given employment constructing roads and bridges. Raised stones to one side of the burn indicate that before the bridge was constructed there was just a crossing by foot.

Looking at the Griffith Valuation map of the period there was a Flax and Corn Mill to the left of the screen with a millpond in a field on the right
