Railway Viaduct
Location: Borris Co.Carlow

Listing Description

The Borris viaduct traverses the picturesque valley of the Mountain River by means of sixteen granite arches, offering a spectacular view of Mount Leinster in the distance. Now accessale to visitors thanks to a strong local voluntary effort, the overgrown embankments have been cleared allowing access to walkways planted with flowers and furnished with tables and chairs, creating an outdoor haven for both locals and visitors. Designed and built by William le Fanu in 1860 the Viaduct was closed nearly one hundred years later in the early 1960's.
