Head for Dundrum past the barrack ruin, go left at the next cross-roads, and straight at the following one, which is called Maudemount cross-roads. The Maude legacy dominates this area; the family's title, Hawarden, is tagged to a bridge nearby. They ensured a station of the Great Southern and Western Railway, the very fine Tudor-style R.I.C. barracks nearby which has become the Garda Siochana (police) barracks, and were patrons of St. Mary's church.
This was O' Dwyer territory before the Cromwellian confiscation; Dundrum is a good base for savouring their old barony of Kilnamanagh including exceptional beauty spots at Glencarberry and Piperhill. The Annacarty-Dundrum area has two series of marshes/fens with rich flora and fauna.
