Abbeyfeale

The town of Abbeyfeale is named after the Cistercian Abbey which was founded here in 1188, near the River Feale. Abbeyfeale is a town noted for Irish music, dance and song. In the town square is a statue to Father William Casey (1844-1907) who was parish priest of Abbeyfeale and noted champion of the fight against landlordism by the tenant farmers. It is situated almost on the Kerry border, and is said to be Limerick's gateway to Tralee, Killarney and the Dingle Peninsula.
