Restoration Works at Cully Bridge Cully Bridge before and after works

During 2016, repairs were carried out to this attractive triple span segmental limestone arch bridge spanning the Mullaghnahoe River, near the Mayo border

The masonry work is of a particularly high standard and works involved repairs to cutwaters, the arch soffit and taking down a failing parapet and rebuilding. The work was carried out to a high standard using conservation principles.

The work was carried out by Triur Construction Ltd, with design, specification and supervision by the Structures and Marine Section.

Sligo County Council’s Director of Services Tom Kilfeather commended Senior Executive Engineer Gary Salter and his team for their outstanding work in preserving and maintaining the county’s historical bridges.  Mr Kilfeather noted that Gary’s work was acknowledged in 2016 when he was awarded the National Engineering Excellence Award in the category of ‘Heritage and Conservation’, in recognition of his exemplary work in this area.
