Thomastown

This town, in beautiful surroundings in the Nore valley, is named after Thomas FitzAnthony Walsh, Seneschal of Leinster, who built a wall around it early in the 13th century and erected a castle, the castle was destroyed by Cromwell in 1650. There are some interesting monuments among the ruins of a large 13th century church and the present Catholic church contains the old high altar of Jerpoint Abbey.
