1822, Memorial to Build Bridge over River Caha, To Inchigeela, with Drawings, Over 1 mile North East of Dunmanway, West Cork, background of Memorialists.
By 1820 there was a good network of roads and bridges over the centre of West Cork with regular coach services to Cork. However the peripheral peninsulas suffered from a deficit as did connections cross country. There was a concerted effort by local worthies to compel the central authorities at Dublin Castle to remedy this by building roads and bridges. In the main they were susessful with superb road built by Griffith adn Nimmo by th eearly 1830s.
