The Kent Bridge, or Thomas Kent Bridge is a stone seven arch bridge which carries the N72 road over the River Blackwater in Fermoy, County Cork. Before Fermoy was bypassed by the M8, the bridge carried the N8 Dublin to Cork national route.
The bridge is on the site of an older bridge, and before that Fermoy was a long established ferry crossing of the Blackwater.
Until 2016, the bridge was known officially as Fermoy Bridge, however, it was renamed in honour of Thomas Kent, who was photographed being led across the bridge prior to his execution.
