In the Duke of Ormond convinced the king to remove restrictions on woollen and linen exports and subsequently founded the woollen industry in Carrick in the s, with the help of Huguenots who had fled France, bringing prosperity to the area. By the late s the political landscape had changed again and the English wars returned to Ireland with William of Orange and James II fighting for the crown. William is believed to have visited Carrick-on-Suir on his way back to England after failing to capture Limerick. Such was the welcome in Carrick-on-Suir, even from families whose sons were fighting for James, that William is said to have granted the town exemption from taxation forever more.
It was a promise that was sadly broken. Carrick-on-Suir remained an island until the 18th century, when rivers to the north and west of the town were diverted. By this time the town enjoyed prosperity through the woollen industry, fishing, basketweaving and other river related businesses. The population had grown to about 11, in However, during the next century the town suffered from high taxes and levies on the woollen industry, leading to high unemployment, poverty and emigration. The Great Famine of the mid 19th Century also contributed to a fall in population in the town and the surrounding area.
Following the Easter Rising, many people across Ireland joined the Republican cause.
County Tipperary was already a hotbed of Republicanism and Carrick-on-Suir and the surrounding areas provided many soldiers and leaders in the War of Independence. During the battle for Carrick-on-Suir, the Courthouse and the Police Station were burnt out, and both bridges were destroyed. They captured weapons before leaving the town to be reoccupied by the Free State Army the following day.
The Town Council also embarked on social housing projects to deal with appalling living conditions experienced by many people in the town. This lets us know that our reviews come from real guests, like you. If you stayed at this property through Booking. There was a problem loading the reviews.
