This village, 5 miles (8 km) south of Tinahely, lies in a wooded valley almost surrounded by hills. The district was once covered by the extensive Shillelagh Wood, which was famous for its oaks (the oak roofing in St Patrick's Cathedral in Dublin came from here). To the east of the village is Coolattin Park, once the large estate of the Fitzwilliam family with its golf course (9). Near by also, at Aghowle, is an ancient church with a twelfth-century doorway and two small round-headed windows with Romanesque ornamentation. The Tinahely horse fair and agricultural show takes place in August each year.
