Carrick-on-Suir Heritage Centre

1200_carrick_heritageThis former Protestant church, now restored as a heritage centre, was once part of the Pre Reformation burial ground and church site of Carrick Mor. Its interesting gravestones include a memorial to Thomas Butler, died 1604, an illegitimate son of Thomas, tenth Earl of Ormonde.

Buried here too is Dorothea Herbert, 1770 - 1829, daughter of the eighteenth century rector and author of "Retrospections". Many local artefacts and photographs are on display. The Heritage Centre also houses a Tourist Information Office and the Butler Church plate collection. The centre is situated on the main street of Carrick-on-Suir.
