West Bridge

In 1574, Loughrea had ‘three fair strong gates made like three castles’2. One of these gates stood at the West Bridge where it crosses the town moat. Like the East Gate on Barrack Street, the gate at West Bridge marked one of the main entry points for tra c in and out of this walled town with its moat.
