Tullow Town

An improving market and post town, 35 miles south, of Dublin, and 5 south east of Carlow, is very pleasantly situated on the bank of the Slaney, over which it has a good stone bridge of five arches. It was formerly a walled town, with a tower and extensive barracks. On the site of ground, on which part of the town now stands, was formerly an abbey, founded by Simon Sambers and Hugh Talon.

It was conveyed by Queen Elizabeth I to the Earl of Ormond, and reduced with the town by Cromwell. Here is a small church, and a spacious and handsome Catholic chapel, in which are three galleries & a handsome altar. Adjoining to the chapel Is a nunnery, founded by the late Dr. Delaney Roman, Catholic Bishop of Kildare, who also founded the monastery; both of these establishments participate in the education of youth.

The extensive flour mills of Mr. Joseph Doyle, and the brewery of Mr. William Carte, have encouraged a good corn market, which is on Saturday, and none in the county is better attended: considerable quantities of butter are also bought up for the Carlow and Waterford markets. Besides the sessions for the barony, which are held here, there are five fairs in the year; viz. on the 20th of January the 21st of April, the 10th of July, the 29th of October, and 21st of November.  Population about 2300.
