Where is the Lingaun Valley?

The Lingaun River Valley forms part of the border between Kilkenny and Tipperary. It meanders through the townlands and villages of Kilcash, Grangemockler, Killamery, Knockroe, Tullahought, Ahenny, Kilmacoliver, Faugheen, and Kilkieran to enter the Suir River at Tybroughney just downstream from the Ormond Castle in Carrick on Suir.

A wealth of ancient and historic sites are scattered along this path. The region is extremely rural in nature and has a strong tradition of farming.

“Ancient Lingaun- as old as the land itself….. ritual stones, tombs, and high crosses sacred to the people who lived here, 5,000 years ago…. with stories treasured and told by those who inhabit that same ancient space today”
