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.
