While walking along the banks of the Barrow close to Leighlinbridge, Martin Nevin provides a chronological account of the major events which took place in the area. He describes the arrival of the early Christian monks, the milling and malting houses, the bridge, which is seven centuries old, and butter making, for which Leighlinbridge was renowned. Among the famous people who emigrated from the area were Myles Keogh, John Tyndall and Cardinal Patrick Moran. The interview concluded with a discussion of the monuments erected in the People’s Park, dedicated to the memory of the local people who died in the First World War.
