The new road includes Ireland’s longest bridge, at 887m, crossing the River Barrow between counties Wexford and Kilkenny.The opening was performed this afternoon by Taoiseach Leo Varadkar with Rose Katherine Kennedy Townsend, a great-granddaughter of Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy and grand niece of the late president.It follows other recent major road schemes in the southeast, including last year’s opening of the Enniscorthy bypass, linking with the M11 along the east coast.

The project follows more than 20 years of work by Transport Infrastructure Ireland, as well as Wexford County Council and Kilkenny County Council. "This bridge not only spans the river Barrow but also brings the communities of Wexford and Kilkenny closer together."

Would The Greens have built it? Would they f**k?

Why is this bridge being named after a privileged ultra conservative American woman. Who knew nothing of Irish life? There is an endless list of brilliant Irish women who deserve to be honoured. ireland kennedy rosefitzgerald bridge wexford cork

Ireland's longest bridge to open on Wexford-Kilkenny border todayThe Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Bridge will cross the River Barrow between Wexford and Kilkenny. This is a good news story. This is Ireland 2020 but yet we focus on the negative all the time. I think it overtakes the Foyle Bridge in Derry at 866m long. 🤔 Opens to the public tomorrow. Official opening by politicians today, public not admitted.
