Athy, in the south of the country on the Dublin-Waterford road, is County Kildare's largest town. There is fishing on the Grand Canal and River Barrow. Tennis, indoor swimming pool, and golf (9). Overlooking the bridge across the River Barrow is White's Castle, built in the sixteenth century by the Earl of Kildare to defend this strategic crossing. Downriver from castle is a striking example of modern church architecture, the fan-shaped Dominican church.
