Fethard, Co. Tipperary

Fethard (Irish: Fiodh Ard - the high wood) is a town in County Tipperary, not far from Cashel.

The town is particularly remarkable for having been heavily fortified and completely surrounded by town walls to keep out the English, which can still be seen today. Knockelly Castle, a well fortified tower house is one of many historical buildings in the area.

The town is also internationally known in the Thoroughbred horse racing industry as the home of Coolmore Stud, one of the world's leading breeding farms. There are also a number of horse-training stables in Fethard, notably that of Michael "Mouse" Morris, at Everardsgrange.

Overlooking all is Sliabh na mBan - holy mountain to all Tipperary people, its 2,368 feet await and welcome strollers, and you can rest on Suí Fionn - Fionn's seat, on the summit.
