Leighlinbridge

Leighlinbridge is a small town on the River Barrow in Co Carlow. The N9 once passed through the village but was by-passed by the M9 in the 1980s. The village now lies on the R705 regional road. Leighlinbridge covers the townlands of Leighlin (east bank of the river) and Ballyknockan (west bank). The village features narrow winding streets, grey limestone malthouses and castle ruins overlooking a 14th-century bridge across the River Barrow which is reportedly one of the oldest functioning bridges in Europe. Leighlinbridge Castle, also nown as Black Castle, was one of the earliest Norman castles in Ireland. Local amenities include a national school, shops, churches, pubs and a hotel, while the town is just 14km from Carlow town and 24km from Kilkenny City.
