William Dargan Bridge - Dundrum, Dublin

Born in County Carlow on 28th Feb 1799, William Dargan has long been regarded as the greatest railway engineer that Ireland has ever had.


Having become qualified in his chosen profession, working in a Dublin Surveyors office, Dargan went on to work in England. He was involved with George Stephenson's pioneering "Rocket" project and the construction of the London-Holyhead rail link lead by the great English engineer Thomas Telford.
