In present-day Cahir the mills which are long established, scaled down now remain. A bakery, with its pyramid roof, and a range of modern industry flourish.
St. Paul's church - an 1820 Nash design. Note the church's magnificent tower and rare cruciform diamond-paned windows in its twin entrance towers.
