KILKENNY SEPTEMBER 2022
I managed to explore a section of Bennetsbridge Road but did not travel as far as the village but I intend to visit next year when I am in the area.
Bennettsbridge is a village in County Kilkenny in Ireland. It is situated on the River Nore 6 kilometres (3.7 mi) south of Kilkenny city, in the centre of the county. Bennettsbridge is a census town, and has population of 745 as of the 2016 census.
The village is on the R700 road at a stone bridge crossing of the Nore between Kilkenny and Thomastown. It has become a craft centre in recent years, with several pottery and craft producers located at the old mill beside the weir.
The village is part of the parish of Tullaherin which contains an almost intact 9th-century round tower.
