This somnolent river crossing village proclaims again the great wealth of fishing and natural river beauties that utterly captivated the Norman Knights and made County Kilkenny a land worth fighting for. Today it is a major Irish magnet for fishermen and women of all sorts and ages. The bridge across the River Barrow joins County Carlow to County Kilkenny and was a prime target for the Wexford rebels advancing toward Castlecomer on June 23rd 1798.
