Mountrath was founded by Sir Charles Coote in the seventeenth-century around a triangular green on the left bank of the White Horse River. The town took its present shape in the eighteenth-century. It was an important centre for iron, brewing, cotton and tanning. The principal public buildings date from the early nineteenth-century. The Mountrath Development Association has done much to improve the visual image of the town.
