The Heritage Centre

The Pre-Reformation burial ground and church site of Carrick Mor (Big Carrick) features the former Protestant Church, now restored as a heritage Centre. Many interesting gravestones are to be found including a memorial to Thomas Butler (d.1604) an illegitimate son of Thomas, 10th Earl of Ormond. Buried here also is Dorothea Herbert (1770-1829), author of “Retrospections”. Numerous local artefacts and photographs are on display. Also on display is the 17th century Duke of Ormonde Church Plate Collection. To-day the centre also includes a Tourist Information Centre.
