Kinnitty, Co. Offaly
The village derives its name from the myth that the head of an ancient princess is buried beneath the village, Ceann being Irish for head and Eitigh being the name of the princess.
The village is situated in a picturesque setting at the foot of the Slieve Bloom Mountains. The village has a pyramid which was built by the Bernard family who resided in Kinnitty Castle, which they built on the site of St. Finnians monastery, the high cross of which is still situated on the site.
The village is probably best known for Kinnitty Castle, which is now a hotel.
