Durrow, Co. Laois
Durrow is a small town located in south County Laois. The town is located on the N8 road at the junction with the N77. The river Erkina flows through Durrow and joins the River Nore about 1.5km east of the town.
Evidence suggests that this area has been visited, if not inhabited, since as early as the Bronze Age. There are numerous ring forts and other enclosures which dot the landscape which point to a more permanent, if dispersed, settlement of the land by the Celts (500B.C.- 500A.D.).
There are many outdoor activities in the local area including canoeing, fishing, golfing, clay pigeon shooting, archery, equestrian, local walks and hillwalking in the Slieve Blooms.
