Wellington Bridge

Wellington Bridge
Carlow Town, Carlow, Ireland.

The Wellington Bridge (also known as the Graiguecullen Bridge) dates to 1569 and connects Carlow Town with Graiguecullen.

In the mid-nineteenth century, Mrs Kelly operated a small shop near the bridge on the Carlow side. In 1870, she was accused of under-weighing goods in her store, and leaving customers short. Kelly protested her innocence but the damage was done. A number of people reported seeing her ghost on or around the Graiguecullen Bridge, and in 1935 an exorcism was carried out here in an attempt to give her soul peace.

Venue Name
Bridge Street, Carlow Town, Carlow, Ireland
