    History of Tullamore

    by mvtouring Written Nov 1, 2008

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Tullamore was part of the first English plantation of Offaly in the 1570s. In 1785 the town was seriously damaged when the crash of a hot air balloon resulted in a fire that burned down about 100 houses giving the town the distinction of being home to the world's first aviation disaster.

    To this day, the town shield depicts a phoenix rising from the ashes.

    The Grand Canal linked Tullamore to Dublin in 1798. Tullamore became county town of County Offaly in 1835, replacing Daingean.

    We were limited with time, so could not go and investigate this centre, but it looked like it had nice things to offer. Very interesting I found it from the outside

    Thank goodness for the English names of the streets, cause I will not be able to read the Irish names, but they look real funky.
