In 1798 this town sustained two attacks from the insurgents, the first was unsuccessful; the second drove the King's troops from the town, which was then set on fire by the rebels, after which they retreated. Captain Hardy was killed in this attack, and "was buried in the churchyard, where there is a monument to his memory. There is a good traffic in corn and potatoes carried on here. Quarter and petty sessions are held for the barony of Rathvilly— the latter the last Thursday in every month.
