Butlersbridge (Irish: Droichead an Bhuitléaraigh) is a village in County Cavan in Ireland, 5 km (3.1 mi) north of Cavan Town just off the N3 National primary road. It was previously a through-point on the N3, but 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.
