Muine Bheag or Muinebeag (meaning small thicket), and more popularly known as Bagenalstown, is a town and townland in County Carlow, Ireland. Muine Bheag is the official name of the town. The name comes from the Irish for "small thicket." It was historically anglicised as Moneybeg. The motto on the town's coat of arms is The Irrepressible Number and its Irish equivalent Uimhir Gan Choisc. The English name Bagenalstown came from Lord Bagenal, who based the town on Versailles in France, and the town's courthouse resembles that of Versailles. Bagenal built the town on the River Barrow to allow for trade and access to the town. He originally wanted the town to be called "New Versailles."show more
