Trooperstown is situated just outside the village of Laragh. The townland is so named because it is said that British troops camped there during the 1798 rebellion. It is a pleasant picnic spot on the banks of the Avonmore River beside a new bridge which replaced the one carried off by “Hurricane Charlie” in 1986. The area between the carpark is a Native Woodland Scheme site and will be replanted with primarily Oak but also Alder and Birch in pockets.
Things to do
Walk There are no way marked trails in Trooperstown but plenty of walking on the forest roads and around the river.
