A Little Bit of Ireland



     In the county of Limerick, is a market, post and fair town, agreeably situated on the river Deel, 108 miles south west of Dublin, 14 south west of Limerick, and 42 north north west of Cork. It was formerly a corporation town, and of much more consequence than it is at present, as it obstinately and successfully resisted various assaults of the English army during the rebellion, which desolated this island in the reign of Queen Elizabeth. At a very early age a priory for Augustinian canons, under the invocation of the Virgin Mary, was founded her by a person of the name of Harvey. The public buildings are the church of the establishment, a small but neat edifice at the entrance of the town, on the Newcastle road; and the Catholic chapel, an unadorned but commodious building, erected about eleven years ago. The greater part of Rathkeale is the property of J. Pigott, esq. of the county of Worcester. The market, which is held on Saturday, is well supplied. The fairs are on the 7th of February, the 4th of April, the 1st and 19th of June, the 25th of August, the 18th of September and the 18th of November.
