Ferrycarrig Bridge

A photograph of Ferrycarrig Bridge (N11 Road), which is just outside of Wexford Town. The official name is Edermine Bridge. On the right, you can see the roundtower that stands on the banks of the River Slaney. Contrary to popular belief, this roundtower is not an early Christian monument (although it was styled after one). The tower was actually built as a memorial for those who had died in the Crimea War in the 1800s.

The current bridge, which crosses the River Slaney, was built back in 1980. To the right, you can also see the spot where the Oak Tavern was situated, before it burned down in 2006.

This was taken from the Norman tower house at Ferrycarrig.
