Welcome to Roscrea, the town with the 31st Wonder of the Word!
Roscrea and its history.
Nestled as it is on a crossroads on the important ancient route to Tara – the Slí Dála, and perched on the high ground between the Devil’s Bit and Slieve Bloom mountain ranges, Roscrea boasts a long and proud heritage stretching back over six thousand years. Indeed, during the recent construction of the M7 new evidence of settlements were unearthed at Derrymore & Camblin.
It is no wonder then that with its area being populated for many millennia, claiming as it does the title of The Oldest Inland Town in Ireland being a town for 1,500 years with so many historical buildings in evidence throughout the town that a wonderful “sense of place” and belonging exists here.
