County Carlow

county carlowCounty Carlow has many unique features of interest to the visitor including Browne's Hill Dolmen - the largest of its kind in Europe, Killeshin Monastery with its beautifully carved Romanesque doorways and Clonmore Abbey which contains many old Celtic crosses.

Carlow comes from the Irish word 'Ceatharlach' which means quadruple lake, possibly referring to the flooding of the river Barrow.
