Tinryland

Tinryland

Tinryland is a picturesque village located 5.5km from Carlow Town, off the N80 Carlow – Rosslare Road. St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Tinryland, built in 1819, contains the striking stained glass window to the memory of Captain Myles Keogh, who was born in Leighlinbridge in 1840 and was killed at the Battle of the Little Big Horn in 1876.

St. Joseph’s in Tinryland claims to be the first rural church in Ireland to use electric light due to local man Paddy Dowling, who played an important part in bringing electricity to rural Ireland in the 1940s.
