No­tice has been given by Der­ry­bawn House that Der­ry­bawn Bridge re­mains open to all light traf­fic and pedes­tri­ans. It has been ad­vised that re­stricted ve­hi­cle traf­fic to that of not more than five ton gross weight and 10kmh. This means that cars and vans un­der this weight have un­re­stricted ac­cess to the Bridge. Pedes­tri­ans are not af­fected by this lim­i­ta­tion and have full ac­cess to the Green Road at all times. We have re­gret­tably had to place bol­lards at the en­trance to the Bridge to en­sure that this limit is ad­hered to and thereby en­sure that one and all are able to en­joy this his­tor­i­cal struc­ture in safety.

We ap­pre­ci­ate that this is the height of the tourist sea­son but we are un­for­tu­nately sub­ject to the depth and flow of the river which is at its low­est at this time of the year. We apol­o­gize for any in­con­ve­nience caused and hope that the bridge will soon be re­stored to a safe and orig­i­nal con­di­tion. If any fur­ther in­for­ma­tion is re­quired please do not hes­i­tate to con­tact me by email der­ry­bawnes­[email protected]­ or phone at 087 4861683.
