Killare (County Westmeath)
Our aim is to connect all people with a link to Killare. You may live here, have visited here or maybe are tracing ancestors who left long ago. In any case, we’re sure to have lots to share and are delighted to welcome you.Feel free to post your message and we will respond as soon as possible. Remember to post as much information as you can with regard to the people you are researching. The more information you post, the more likely it is that one of our volunteers will be able to advise or assist you. Also include information concerning which sources you may have already used to others may further your research.
Please be patient - as our programme has only begun to roll out across the island of Ireland and volunteers in some areas may not yet be organised.
The hill of Uisneach lies close to the town of Killare. This would be in the center of Ireland. The top of Uisneach stands at 180 metres. There is a great view from the hill and it is a great tourist attraction. The first men to arrive in this area came around 3000 BC. That would be the time of the bronze age going on to the medieval period. It takes from the name a cat watching a mouse which is familiar to the people in the area known as 'Catstone'.
