Fethard Town Wall line to be marked

Work is currently in progress to mark the line of the Fethard Wall where it crosses the public road on Lower Main Street, Watergate, Burke Street and Barrack Street. These four sites will identify where the original gateways and town wall were located before they were demolished.

Work is currently in progress to mark the line of the Fethard Wall where it crosses the public road on Lower Main Street, Watergate, Burke Street and Barrack Street. These four sites will identify where the original gateways and town wall were located before they were demolished.

The work will be completed by South Tipperary County Council who have received Ministerial Consent from the Department and under the direction of an employed archaeologist. The markings will be of split limestone and have a rough cobbled looking face and will be carried out at all gateways except the existing North Gate.

New signage designed to state what the markings mean will also be erected in the relevant sites.
