The Liscarroll Community Planning has been facilitated by Paul O’Raw & Associates through Ballyhoura Development CLG and supported by the LEADER Rural Development Programme. Liscarroll Community Council has organised and advised the process locally in the community.
The aim of the process was to support the community to identify local needs and issues at the heart of Liscarroll so that these could be addressed through future actions and forward planning to make sure that these needs can be adequately met. The plan aims to guide the work of local clubs and organisations, as well as state agencies, local authorities and other stakeholders, while also provide a reference point for the community.
The Community Plan is now available for download at CLICK HERE.

The sieges of Liscarroll and the important battle which took place there on the 3rd September, 1642, have been described more than once, the accounts being based upon contemporary records but telling of less than nothing a structure which must have been erected more than 300 years before. it is hardly to be expected, indeed, that the seventeenth century observers of the conflict would know much about the ancient building but it is remarkable that earlier references are lacking or have not yet come to light.
