The Glen of Aherlow

Irish Homeland of the Henebry, Foley, Magner & O'Brien Families.

    The Glen of Aherlow (the valley of the River Aherlow) extends about 15 miles from Bansha in the east to Galbally in the west and is between the Galty Mountains and the Slieve na Muck hills. The Coach Road provides a beautiful view of the area from from the statue of Christ the King, which was erected by the local community.  The church of Christ the King is located in Galbally.   This route was used by Bianconi's Coaches which were the first to offer public transportation in Ireland.  The glen was an important pass between Tipperary and Limerick, and became a hideout for the "Raparee", the Irishmen who were dispossessed of their lands and became outlaws. 

Approximate traveling time to the Glen of Aherlow from:  Dublin City, two 1/2 hours; Cork City, one hour; Limerick City, 40 minutes, Galway City, two hours, Waterford City, one 1/2 hours, Shannon, one hour.

Moorabbey on the road to the Glen of Aherlow was a Franciscan Abbey built in 1204.
  Three of its friars were martyred there in 1570 and the story goes that on being beheaded no blood flowed from their necks.
