Butlersbridge (Irish: Droichead an Bhuitléaraigh) is a picturesque village in County Cavan in Ireland, 5 km (3.1 mi) north of Cavan Town just off the N3 National primary road. It was well known as point on the N3 but it was bypassed in 1999. The bridge in the village crosses the River Annalee, a tributary of the River Erne. A church dedicated to the local St. Aiden is located in the town. It is approximately 8 mins drive or 9.0 km via the N54 to the border with Northern Ireland.
