The village of Ardfinnan, population approximately 2000, in County Tipperary ,is situated seven miles west of Clonmel.( Irelands largest inland town).Overlooking the village is the magnificent Castle built in 1185 by John Earl of Morton who later became King John.The village of Ardfinnan was once a very important place as it commanded a ford over the river Suir which was one of the few crossing places on the river during the flood season.Now a magnificent Bridge of some fourteen arches spans the river overlooked by the Castle.Ardfinnan derives it's name from Saint Finnan who founded a monistary and brought weaving to the area which continued up to 1971 when it was forced to cease operations as their was a decline for its goods due to recession.Today we have two factories in its place,one producing insulation for the building industry and the other produces paper bags for many different uses.The village is a picturesque setting with a green at it,s centre ,a beautifull wood as a back drop with the weir and river at its centre,village life consists of it,s many clubs which cater for both young and old and is perhaps one of the best places to live and work as the pase of life is carefree and pleasant(a little piece of Heaven you might say).
