Kilmacthomas

Kilmacthomas, Coill Mhic Thomaisin - The Wood of the Son of Thomas. Located half way between Dungarvan and Waterford, Kilmacthomas is a good base for walking and hill climbing in the area. The film star Tyrone Power, great grandson of the actor and comedian Tyrone Power (1797-1841) was a native of Kilmacthomas. Two famous Gaelic poets lived and composed here, these being Tadhg Gaelach O Suilleabhain, and Donacha Rua Mac Conmara. There is a pleasant public park in Kilmacthomas, a stiking feature of which is the railway bridge which is now unused. It is a viaduct built in the 1860's, with eight arches.
