Along Knight Street are the remains of Ballingarry Castle, which was once home to the de Lacy family, who fled Ireland for Europe after losing their lands and titles in the Cromwellian and Jacobite wars.
Ballingarry had a booming economy in the early 1800’s with an important weaving and linen industry until the Famine struck in the 1840’s.
