Cahir Park Golf Club, County Tipperary

cahir-park-golf-club-7-5452713cahir-park-golf-club-7-5452713 Making its presence felt in the world of golf since 1969, Cahir Golf Club course is designed in parkland style. The terrain on which it is built was once a part of Lord Cahir’s estate. It has 18 holes in total with streams and lakes that pose a tough challenge to even expert golfers. Those who have supposedly mastered the game of golf may be in for a shock as their skills are put to test by the water hazards on this course. Water features can be found around seven holes on the course with River Suir coming into play at two holes. This enables one to enjoy the magnificent views of the beauty of its natural environs, while enjoying a taxing game. Apart from the water hazards, the mature trees on the course are also difficult to play over that should not be taken non-seriously even if one happens to be a long hitter.

Out of the 18 holes on the course, the 7th hole is hailed as the most excellent one. In addition to this, the world-class facilities such as trolleys and clubs for rent, bar and practice area offered by Cahir Park Golf Club are also one of the primary attractions of this place.

Cahir, County Tipperary

cahir-0-2738883cahir-0-2738883cahir-1-3171570cahir-2-4854758cahir-3-9170234olympus-digital-camera-2cahir-5-1555620cahir-6-9823579cahir-8-5109710cahir-9-5406849 Cahir, County Tipperary is a small heritage town that falls under the barony of Iffa and Offa West, and famous for the Cahir Castle and Swiss Cottage. Its name is derived from Cathair or an Chathair, which literally means strong ringfort, though another name, Cathair Dhún Iascaigh meaning stone ringfort of the fishing, is also quite popular. The town was set up in the 13th century, and has been influenced by the Butler family, which is responsible for the genesis of Barons of Cahir, throughout its history.

Cahir Castle is one of the largest and grandest castles of Ireland, and located at an island in River Suir. It was constructed in the year 1142 and handed over to James Butler in 1375. The castle has been besieged thrice, once in 16th century and twice in the 17th century, during the times of Irish Confederate Wars. After being handed over to the influential Butler Family, it was reconstructed in the 15th and 17th century. This castle fell into disrepair the latter half of the 18th century and restored to quite an extent in the 1840s. The last Lord Cahir passed away in 1961 and the ownership of the castle final came under the Irish State. Nowadays, the reconstructed castle is a national monument and heavily visited by tourists, who enjoy the audio-visual show.

Another notable building in this town is the Swiss Cottage, which was established in the year 1810 to entertain the guests of Lord and Lady Cahir. It is an excellent example of cottage ornee, the Irish term for ornamental cottage. However, this cottage was neglected by the authorities, and restoration work started as late as 1985. It was opened to the public in 1989 and has received tremendous tourist traffic since then. Other noteworthy sites in Cahir are Mitchelstown Caves, Craft Granary and Glendarra Woods.

Historically speaking, this town was one of the first to be linked via stagecoach with other cities in the early 19th century. It is home to one of the three ecclesiastical buildings designed by John Nash, as well as several sites for heritage walks. This town is situated in the vicinity of Galtee Mountains and Knockmealdown Mountains, and twinned with the city of Scarborough, United Kingdom.

The town has a small shopping precinct that is located within the immediate vicinity of the town square, which lies adjacent to Castle Street. Its amenities include a library, several pubs, taverns, restaurants, cafes and cinemas, along with various thriving sporting centers. The main sports clubs and associations of this town include the 18 hole golf course of Cahir Park Golf Club, Gaelic Athletics Association and Duneske Leisure Limited. The love of horse riding of this town is displayed through three exclusive clubs, namely Cahir Equestrian Center, O’Gorman Equestrian Center, and Tipperary Hunt Pony Club. The Cahir Park All Weather sporting facility, all-weather soccer pitch, all-weather tennis courts, downhill mountain biking tracks have been set up to promote several sports. Being close to the salmon weir, which is located opposite of castle’s bridge, provides the residents of this town with ample fishing opportunities.

carrick-on-suir-0-2586291carrick-on-suir-0-2586291carrick-on-suir-1-5366498carrick-on-suir-2-2524728carrick-on-suir-5-5936609carrick-on-suir-6-7262004 Carrick-on-Suir is a thriving town located in the south-east of Ireland in County Tipperary.

The town is located on the route between Rosslare Ferry Port and Limerick, which is called the National Road 24.

To the south-east of the Suir, the Walsh Mountains overlook this 800 years old town. According to historians, the first settlement of the town was found in the Walsh Mountains. Life in this medieval town began with the grant of three fairs per year by Matthew Fitz Griffin, who was the Lord of the manor of Carrick.

Besides, the history of the town traces its root back to 823 AD, when Turgesius started building forts on the bank of rivers for settlement.

Later, Anglo Norman family called Le Bret came to Carrig and built Manor House of the Butlers. The ruins and remains of their residence can still be seen in the town. In the 14th century, the judiciary of the town came under the rule of Butlers of Ormond. Moreover, in 1309, Edmond Butler, who was the member of this clan, constructed two large, heavily garrisoned castle keeps that are known as Plantagenet Castle. In 1315, he also created the Earl of Carrig.

In 1447, Richard the Builder constructed the Old Bridge, which is one of the most spectacular stone bridges in Ireland. The four towered castle of the town was also built in the 1400s. The modern history of the town revolves around the tanning industry (1934 – 1938). In 1784, the family called Galloway funded the construction of the Town Clock in Carrick-on-Suir. Commercially, the town stared flourishing after first quarter of the 20th Century, when Plunder and Pollack Leather Factory opened.

Landmarks of different eras dominate the sightseeing attractions in the town. Blarney Woollen Mills, Ahenny High Crosses and Ormonde Castle are the major landmarks of the town. Another prominent landmark of the town is the Old Bridge that is situated at the end of Bridge Street. Carrick-on-Suir also offers awe-inspiring view of the countryside from the viewing points like Mahon Falls and Comeragh Mountains.

River Suir that flows across the town is habitat of Atlantic salmon and brown trout, because of which it is popularly known as the angler’s paradise in Europe. Carrick-on-Suir is also a centre of other activities like golf, tennis, soccer and rugby. Like all other towns of Ireland, Carrick-on-Suir also has a tradition of horse riding. This unique combination of heritage and leisure attracts earn this small and bustling town a prominent place on the map of Ireland.
