The River Bride (Irish: An Bhríd) is a river in counties Cork and Waterford in Ireland. It is a tributary of the Munster Blackwater. Rising in the Nagle Mountains, it flows eastward, passing through the towns of Rathcormac, Castlelyons, Conna and Tallow, before joining the Blackwater at Camphire, approximately 3 miles (4.8 km) north of Youghal. The English poet Edmund Spenser is reputed to have written part of his poem "The Faerie Queene" on the banks of the Bride in the Conna area. The river runs through the baronies of Barrymore and Imokilly. The river is tidal up to Tallow Bridge.
