Kate McKay's Bridge is a five arch bridge that carries the B25 across the Upper Bann at Katesbridge. [1].

According to wikipedia (uncited) "The hamlet is named after Kate McKay, who was born in Ballyroney in 1691 and later went to live with her grandmother who is said to have owned the house where the workmen lodged when building the 18th-century bridge. It is because of Kate's kindness the workmen named the bridge after her, and the hamlet became known as Katesbridge."[2]
