Tallowbridge, Co. Waterford

8km (five miles) south of Lismore is the quiet little town of Tallow, on the Glenaboy River near where the stream joins the river Bride. In the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries this was a busy place with several thriving industries. The sculptor John Hogan (1800-1858) was born here. Tallow Hill (592 feet), less than 2 km (1 mile) north-east, has fine views. A 1 km (0.5 mile) west of Tallowbridge village is the ruined keep of Lisfinny Castle, an ancient fortress of the Fitzgeralds.
