Knocknaginny Bridge

Knockaginny, Monmurry, Tyrone/Monaghan Unapproved Road


  • The bridge was blown up in the early 1970s by the British Army.

  • The British Army placed a footbridge across the river to allow people to cross the border.

  • The road on the northern side had always been a gravel surface before the bridge was blown. When the bridge was reopened a proper road surface was put in on the northern side.

  • The bridge was rebuilt by Monaghan County Council. The plaque on the bridge is dedicated to the reopening which happened on the Wednesday 20th October 2010.
