Emo is a village in County Laois. It is located near Portlaoise on the R422 regional road just off the M7 Dublin–Limerick motorway.

Understand[edit]

The late 18th century village of Emo originally sprang up around the gates of Emo Court. The village pub, named The New Inn (now called "The Gate House"), dates from the village’s foundation as does the Gothic Catholic Church which contains the tomb of Aline, the Lady Portarlington, with its recumbent effigy by Joseph Boehm. The site for the church was a gift from Lord Portarlington, and the parochial house and lands beside the church were granted by the Earl of Portarlington at a nominal rent.
