The Chronicles Challenge is a platform that is used to share local information about our civil parishes in Ireland.  If you have a photograph or some history about any of the prompts, please feel free to create an IrelandXO Chronicle about it.  You can use the three strands of:  Ancestor, Building or Timeline Event.  #chronicleschallenge #irelandxo

Chronicles Challenge Bridges

Bridges can be found in every parish in Ireland and in a variety of locations throughout a parish area.  Many bridges were built as part of a road building scheme.  Estate owners also requested funds for bridge building through the Grand Jury Presentments.  In addition, many Poor Law Relief committees required bridges to be built during the Famine as part of Famine relief work schemes.  A bridge can be associated with a family estate, an area, or an event.  In addition, it can be named in memory of a well-known person.  As a result, please feel free to create an Ancestor profile, a Building Profile or a Timeline Event using this prompt.  For those creating a Building profile, please use the filter type of "Landmark" or "Memorial" as appropriate.  

Please use the hashtag #ChroniclesChallenge with submission of your Chronicle.
