Tipperary County Council

Contact Details

People have lived in the area around Ardcroney since at least the Neolithic era, judging by the wealth of archaeological remains. These include two unusual Linkardstown-style burials, a portal tomb, an early medieval ringfort and a motte and bailey. The church is a single-cell structure built from rough limestone blocks, which was probably extended in the 16th century by adding a nave, chancel and chancel arch, which can still be seen. Linked to the church by a defensive bawn wall is Ardcroney castle, a four-storey towerhouse built in the 14th century.
