Town Bridge carries the R445 over the River Barrow at Monasterevin, Kildare.

The bridge is a five arch stone arch bridge and was, according to Kildare Local History built in 1832[1]. The Buildings of Ireland website, however, gives a date of c.1780.

A pillbox was built on one side of the bridge during the Second World War to defend the town.
