Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Dromiskin is a village and townland in County Louth, Ireland. It is situated 10 km south of Dundalk, about 1 km inland from the Irish Sea coast, and is located in one of Louth's most historical areas. The village was home to a monastery for hundreds of years, once visited by Saint Patrick. This site for the monastery was picked as it is a local high point; it is also where a round tower was built and still remains. From the tower there is a view of all of Dundalk Bay and the surrounding countryside. Dromiskin also served as the home to the Archbishops of Armagh for a time. Dromahane is a village located 5 km south west of the town of Mallow, County Cork, Ireland on the R619 regional road. Centered around a main crossroads, the village overlooks the Blackwater Valley. The village is part of the parish of Kilshannig. Thomas Russell is referred to as "The man from God knows where" and, as it happens, he was born in the village on November 21, 1767. He was a founding member of the United Irishmen and was hanged in 1803 in Downpatrick jail for his involvement in uprisings against the British.show more
