    Market House

    by TheaIren Written Mar 2, 2012

    Market House in Kilrush city center square hosts Kilrush Heritage Center.

    The display is entitled 'Kilrush in Landlord Times' and includes an audio visual reconstruction of the 1888 Vandeleur evictions. The exhibition is a great starting point for a heritage walk through the streets of Kilrush, which will complete your transportation back to experience landlord times in Kilrush.

    Very friendly and authentic Irish pub in a small town in the south of County Clare. One wet and cold afternoon in May we had a few beers and watched the golf and got talking to the owner. Came back for dinner, very good. We didn't stay there but they have B&B rooms upstairs (see their website). More chats with owner Kevin about golf - it was like meeting an old friend. Lots of history to the pub.

    Kilrush has a great golf course. It's usually very busy during the day, but if you wake up early you can have a great game

    Town Hall square

    by TheaIren Written Feb 27, 2012

    Favorite thing: Its so little town that you have time to explore a lot.
    The liveliest place in town is town square. Bus stops also there.

    Fondest memory: When usually ( as much as I have seen so far ) the Irish towns tend to be quite compactly built with narrow streets. Kilrush in the other hand has a lot of space...it feels spacious.

    Favorite thing: In the center of the square is the monument to the 'Manchester Martyrs', also known as 'The Three Fenians', were Irish nationalists who were executed for the murder of a policeman during a prison break. William O'Mera Allen, Michael Larkin, and William Goold (aka O'Brien) were hanged in Manchester, England on November 23, 1867. These men were caught and convicted for their rescue of Colonel Thomas J. Kelly and Captain Timothy Deasy. The rescue took place on the borders of West Gorton and Ardwick, to the immediate south east of Manchester City Centre.

    (Spparently these guys who attacked a van that was transporting some Irish nationalists from one prison to another had to bad luck to kill a policeman when they fired at the lock on the van at the exact moment that the policeman was looking out the keyhole to see what was going on).
