Nenagh

Nenagh was a Norman settlement, which became a 19th century garrison town and the capital of the new North Riding. Nenagh Castle, built in the early 13th century by Norman Thoebald Fitzwalter, with its 1860's crown is a major feature of the town. Also, there are two 19th century gothic style churches, and the ruins of a Franciscan Friary. Another attraction of the town is the Heritage Centre. This is across the road from the Castle, and has the facade of the County Gaol, gatehouse and the Governor's House. The exhibition focuses on the lifestyles of the people of the area through the years.
