Ossory Bridge artwork demolished

Demolition of sculptured artwork panels on Ossory Bridge 29 September 2023

The last panels of the beautiful artwork, depicting the history of Kilkenny, on Ossory Bridge were demolished on last Friday 29 September.

The bridge which brings the ring road over the River Nore was completed in 1984 and the sculpture, by Joan Smith, in concrete panels on both sides of the bridge approach were added.

The demolition is being undertaken as part of ongoing works to improve accessibility for pedestrians and cyclists with a three-metre path.

It had been thought that the panels could just be removed and erected elsewhere but it appears this was not feasible.
