About The Boyne Viaduct

The Boyne Viaduct in Drogheda, Co. Louth.

The Boyne Viaduct was designed by Sir John MacNeill. It opened in 1855 and was the final connection of the railway line between Dublin and Belfast. The original structure was a continuous girder bridge 550ft 4ins overall, in three spans. The three spans over the river were replaced in 1932 with iron trusses by the "Motherwell Bridge Engineering Company" with G.B. Howden as the chief engineer to allow heavier steam engines to use the bridge. The viaduct is about 100ft above the River Boyne.
