Sometimes known as Newtownbarry, this interesting settlement features an unusual stream with a series of small scale waterfalls in the main street. With many interesting buildings, it offers the flavour of a long established settlement in the tranquil Slaney River Valley
Bunclody lies in the shadow of the 2610ft Mount Leinster. The Barry-Maxwell family acquired the town and its surrounding lands in 1719, and it was Judith Barry-Maxwell and her son Bishop Henry Maxwell who diverted water from the River Clody to provide the town with a water supply.
In 1776 the Barry-Maxwell family built an elegant Protestant parish church, in fact the family was so influential in the the town that Bunclody was once named Newtownbarry, until 1950, when it reverted to it's original name, meaning 'mouth of the river Clody'.
The town has seen a fair share of turmoil down through the years. It was attacked during the rebellion of 1798 resulting in 300 dead and 40 houses burnt. In 1831 the local yeomanry opened fire on protestors in an event that came to be known as the Battle of the Pound. In 1727 Richard Annesley assumed the ownership of the Bunclody estates by having the rightful heir, James, his 12 year old nephew sold into slavery in America.
