Fenagh

Fenagh

 

Fenagh is known for its architectural design and granite buildings with fine examples of stone work to be seen in the houses and surrounds throughout the village. One of the most famous families associated with the area was the Lecky Watson’s, a Quaker family, who first settled here in the early 18th Century.

Descendants of the family created the first set of written rules for playing polo while another member of the family hunted down the last recorded wolf in Ireland on the slopes of Mount Leinster. Outside Ballydarton House on the outskirts of Fenagh is a fine example of the Carlow Fence.
