The Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Bridge opened on 30th January 2020, and carries the N25 over the River Barrow between the counties of Wexford and Kilkenny, south of New Ross.

The bridge is named after Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy, the mother of former US President John F. Kennedy, who came from Dunganstown, near to the site of the bridge. The name was decided on following consultation, however, the name Pink Rock Bridge was more popular amongst respondents[1].
