Mark the date in your diary for “picnic in the park” at Liscarroll Village Green. Just bring a picnic and blanket and of course your family and friends. This is a free entry event and any profits from donations or stalls on the day will go towards the refurbishments to Liscarroll Community Centre. Please spread the word and support this community event.
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 has now been drafted and your views are now invited on it. Please see the following link 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.
