Wikipedia has a page about Green's Bridge

Green's Bridge, or Greensbridge, is an elegant palladian-style limestone arch bridge crossing the river Nore in Kilkenny, Ireland. The bridge is a series of five elliptical arches, of high quality carved limestone masonry, with a two arch culvert to east. Its graceful profile, architectural design value, and civil engineering heritage, make it of national significance. Historian Maurice Craig described it as one of the five finest bridges in Ireland. It was completed in 1766, built by William Colles and was designed by George Smith. The bridge is 250 years old in 2016.

Situated on the north side of the city, the location has been a ford since at least the middle of the 10th century. The first bridge was build in the 12th century by settlers from Flanders, and has been rebuilt many times due to constant floods. The bridge itself is known from medieval times, described as "the Bridge of Kilkenny", "the big bridge of Kilkenny", "Grines Bridge", however the origin of Green's Bridge is uncertain. The Great Flood of 1763 destroyed the previous bridge.

Designed by George Smith and built by William Colles. Colles was owner of the marble works and inventor of machinery for sawing, boring, and polishing limestone. Smith designed almost a true copy of Bridge of Tiberius (Italian: Ponte di Augusto e Tiberio) in Rimini, as described by Andrea Palladio's (1508–80) in The Four Books of Architecture (1570) (I Quattro Libri dell'Architettura). Parapets with added during a renovation in 1835.

Currently used as a road bridge, temporary works carried out in 1969 have not had a positive impact and the general appraisal is that the bridge needs restoration. Written stone on a cut-limestone plaque is "Eland Mossom MP for this Borough 1776". The estimated the cost of the bridge was £2828.
