Clonmel is the county town of South Tipperary and home to about 15,000 people. Its Gaelic name, Clauin Meala, translates to “honey meadow.” The town is on the banks of the River Suir. Laetitia took her group on the Clonmel Heritage Trail and visited some ring fort remains in the area. Then, they visited Carey’s Castle before stopping at a Clonmel pub. The gossip in the pub about a local pair provided the limerick of the day.
In Clonmel, a young couple, O’Keefe
Who went out to make love on the heath
Found it prickled the hide
So they could not decide
Which of them would lie down underneath.
