Thomastown - Kilkenny - Market St

B/W picture

Thomastown (Baile Mhic Andáin in Irish) is a town situated on the River Nore in County Kilkenny, 17 km south of Kilkenny city in the southeast of Ireland. With a population of 1,600 (2002 Census), the town is the biggest in the county outside of Kilkenny city. It has a beautiful stretch of the river Nore running through it which, depending on the time of year is abundant with salmon and trout. Thomastown was called Grennan until the 11th century, at which time a Norman lord named Thomas took ownership of the town. His full name was Thomas FitzAnthony and this surname appears the town's name in Irish. The 12th-century Jerpoint Abbey is located near the town.
