Cloughjordan

Cloughjordan, officially Cloghjordan, is a town in County Tipperary in Ireland. It is in the barony of Ormond Lower, and it is also a parish in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Killaloe.The town is situated in the north-western part of Tipperary close to the Offaly border. It is almost equidistant from Nenagh, Roscrea and Birr and is close to Ireland's largest river, the Shannon, and Lough Derg.Poet and patriot Thomas MacDonagh, a native of Cloughjordan, described it as a place "in calm of middle country".Unusually for a town of its size, it has three churches – Roman Catholic, Church of Ireland and Methodist .The proposed new Dáil constituency of Offaly will incorporate 24 electoral divisions from Tipperary North including Cloughjordan.HistoryDeveloped at the intersection of travel routes between Nenagh, Birr, Borrisokane and Moneygall, the village of Cloughjordan began as an inhabited settlement during the Norman lordship of Ireland of the 13th and 14th centuries when the De Marisco family were allotted land in Ormond under the overlordship of the Butlers by King Henry II. One unit of the De Mariscos (Morris or Morrissey in modern terms) moved into this area, took over the territory and built a stone castle and manor house guarded by a moat surrounding the dwelling.
