Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Bridge


The Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Bridge is a modern road bridge near New Ross in south west County Wexford, Ireland.

The bridge may be an ideal filming location where an impressive modern bridge in a picturesque location is needed. The extradosed bridge is Ireland’s longest bridge. It has won awards for its design and due to its good looks and impressive style, it is considered a local landmark and sightseeing spot. The three towers laid out in the golden ratio and the harp configuration of the stay cables give the bridge a unique and visually pleasing identity.

Where the bridge crosses it, the River Barrow is surrounded by rolling hills andfarm land, which together adds a gentle rural atmosphere to the location.

The crossing was opened in 2020 and was designed by Arup. The bridge crosses the River Barrow as part of the N25 New Ross bypass.
