O’Brien’s Bridge

The small village of O’Brien’s Bridge has two bridges, one of modern construction over the canal, and the older stone bridge over the river. The flow of the river is obstructed by a massive weir diverting much of it into an artificial canal headed for the hydroelectric works at Ardnacrusha.

O’Brien’s Bridge is a noted centre for coarse angling and one can take enjoyable walks along the old river.
