Lismore is a town full of history. Situated on the River Blackwater and only 65kms from Waterford City and 60kms from Cork City. For the researcher, you can visit Lismore Castle, St. Carthage's Cathedral, various graveyards, and various parishes nearby. Lismore Workhouse 1838 - 1923 isn't accessible though it's worth stopping if passing by. I've added two photographs that I took recently.
