Kellys BridgeLeaghanny, killeter Forest, Tyrone/Donegal Unapproved Road

This crossing was cratered on the Northern side a good distance from the border bridge. The crater was very large; the tour guide remembers actually standing in the crater.
This was a remote area and the British Army would have travelled via helicopter transport.
Close to the bridge was the last house in the area where an old couple lived ("Kelly's") which was known as a "Stop Over House", where people who were traveling North or South could sleep overnight. The house is not there anymore but their relatives erected a stone in memory of the couple.
