Rathangan History Trail

In the space of an hour take a short walk around Rathangan and learn about the Rath which dates from c. 500AD and, according to local lore, has a room full of gold under it! 

Nearby in the old graveyard are graves from the 1700s and fragments from an earlier Medieval church. Many of the big houses were built by Quakers and by Canal Engineers. Famous local people include Ned Broy, who worked for Michael Collins, the writer Maura Laverty and the poet W.A. Byrne.
