Foulksmills

This charming little village 15km west if New Ross, set on the River Nore, is believed to have been founded by Saint Columbia. An Augustinian priory, built in 1206, later became its main centre. The river at this point, provided excellent fishing as well as contributing to the natural unique beauty of this village reminiscent of Ireland in a bygone age. The charm on Inistioge has attracted film, makers and has been the location for two international films. Widows Peak and Circle of Friends.
