Ballylinan

From Wikitravel
Jump to: navigation, search

Ballylinan is a village in County Laois. The name means "Lynan's town", though exactly who Lynan was is now forgotten.

Understand[edit]

Ballylinan is mainly a farmland area with no real industrialisation, although the building of many new housing developments has changed the area dramatically and increased its population. These developments, some still currently under construction, include "Rahin Wood", "The Village", "White Thorn Grove", "Cottage Gates", and "Gracefield Manor".

The village has a number of shops, a church, a Garda (police) station, school, garage, and five pubs, the most noted of which is Murphy's often referred to as 'Skinners' by the locals. All of these establishments are on the one road: the N78.
