Rhode, Co. Offaly

Rhode is a village in County Offaly, Ireland. It is situated on the R400 at its junction with the R441 which leads to Edenderry, the nearest town, located 12 km east of Rhode.

The village is on an "island" of high ground surrounded by an expanse of raised bog which forms part of the Bog of Allen.

The modern village of Rhode developed around a peat-burning power plant operated by the Electricity Supply Board which was supplied with milled peat by Bord na Móna. The plant was shut down in 2003 and its cooling towers were demolished on March 16, 2004, removing a highly visible landmark.
