Information about Boyle Bridge

Boyle River & Bridge

The bridge over the river Boyle in the centre of town has been the subject for countless photographs, postcards and featured in many publication. The bridge was damaged a few months ago. Restoration works are now underway.
Local historian Frank Geelan has supplied information about the history of the bridge.
In 1763, Sir Edward King had a statue of King William erected on the bridge of the time, possible a wooden structure. This statue was moved to a site on top of a stone plinth in what was know as the Town Park, and now named the Pleasure Grounds. The statue was moved before the rebuilding of Boyle Bridge in 1834.
