“We give with present issue a view of a stone bridge of ten arches of equal span, erected over the River Nore, at the town of Inistioge, County Kilkenny, from a design by Mr. George Smith. Our view has been copied from a plate published in a “ Survey ” of that county made in the years 1800 and 1801, by William Tighe, Esq., of Woodstock. The author of the Report tells his readers that “ it has been printed and circulated for the purpose merely of procuring further informa- tion respecting the state and husbandry of this district, and of enabling every one in- terested in the welfare of this country, to examine it fully, and contribute to its im- provement.” The Irish Builder, November 15 1892.
