This hugely anticipated new edition of the classic Irish Stone Bridges covers the history of road bridges in Ireland from AD 1000 to 1830. A highly readable and exacting study, Irish Stone Bridges: History and Heritage is unsurpassed in its scope, function and design, remaining the definitive history and field guide to these oft-hidden treasures that deeply enrich Ireland’s heritage and environment.

Exquisitely illustrated, with over 300 newly taken photographs, and now in colour for the first time, this publication continues as a vital work for Irish civil engineers, architects, conservationists, and local historians, as well as a thoroughly enjoyable and engrossing read for teachers, tourists and all those who value this fascinating aspect of Ireland’s cultural heritage. Part I examines the technical histories and contexts for the bridges, uncovering every aspect of their exceptional beauty and technical achievement, while Part II is a unique gazetteer of over 75 bridges and groups of bridges that cover the length and breadth of Ireland.
