Mountmellick, Co. Laois

The Irish name translates as 'soft bogland'. Mountmellick lies in a bend in the River Owenass, almost ringed by it, at the north - eastern end of the Slieve Bloom Mountains. Nearby is Cathole Glen with its cascades and trout pools.

Quakers industrialised the town in the early 18th century and the large houses and work buildings of prosperous merchants can be seen in the town today.
