It is situated some 19 km west-north-west of Waterford City, where the Clodiagh meets the Suir.HistoryIt was once the home of a very successful cotton mill employing most of the town's population. The mill was built by the Malcomson family. The Malcomsons were a Quaker family, and their religious ideals impacted greatly on the town, with industrial houses and social networks built as part of the planned town still forming a central part of the streetscape today. The Malcomsons were one of the most influential families connected to Irish planned industrial towns, through marriage they became connected to Quakers who designed Bessbrook in Northern Ireland, with Portlaw truss roofs being built into Bessbrook houses as a result.Attractions and facilitiesThe town's Main Street has a bakery, butcher, grocery, bars, a Heritage Centre and Roman Catholic and Church of Ireland churches. The town's main attraction is Curraghmore House, a manor sitting on the outskirts which has around 40 ha of land, is open for visits between March and October.
