Today we are staying in the Faithful County with a fine photo of the Old Bridge at Birr. I have been to Birr a few times, and I do not remember seeing a bridge like this - I wonder if it is still there?
tells us that the bridge (dating to the 17th century) is still there - though the houses on the bridge were removed as recently as the late 20th century. There seems to be a green amenity area there now
- and one would possibly be forgiven for not realising it's on a bridge....
