This attractive little town in the hilly northern part of Kilkenny lies in a wooded valley where the river Dinin is joined by a tributary from the west. Though the centre of the country's largest coalfield the neighbourhood has a scenic charm not usually associated with colliery areas. The district was once part of the territory of the O Brennans, who were finally dispossessed in the seventeenth century, but are still numerous in the area. A biennnial Brennan family rally has been held here.
