Carrickon Suir

Carrick-on-Suir, an Irish town in the province of Munster and county of Tipperary, on the Suir, 14 miles east of Clonmel, and on the Limerick and Waterford railway. On the other side of the river and connected by a bridge is the suburb of Carrickbeg, which has a fourteenth-century abbey. The Butler family derive the title Earl of Carrick from this town, and there are still remains of their castle. Its industries are linen and woollen manufactures, and a trade in agricultural produce, and in the neighbourhood are important slate-quarries.
