The Market Square

From the late 19th century, Kiltimagh was a vibrant market place with the Fair Day being the highlight of the month.

On this day the streets and the Square were alive with people buying and selling livestock and wares. There are a series of wall plaques here depicting the traditional activities synonymous with the old Fair Day. Also to be seen in the square is the monument to ‘Raifteiri an File’, and a magnificent piece of sculpture, ‘Eternal Spring’, by Benedict Byrne.
