Following the arrival of the Anglo-Normans in Ireland in 1169, the district in which Fethard is situated was granted to a knight named Harvey de Montmorency. He, in turn, granted it to Christ Church, Canterbury, England. In 1200A.D. Canterbury ordered the construction of a castle at Fethard and a court to the north of the church, presumably on the site of the present castle.Email: hookinfo2@eircom.net less

Arklow's maritime history stretches back to the mists of pre-history. There is evidence to show that the 2nd century cartographer Ptolemy knew of its existence. In the 9th century the Vikings established the town and port on a permanent basis. The Normans consolidated its seafaring traditions. By the turn of the 20th century Arklow was Ireland's premier fishing port and had a fleet of 80 schooners, brigs and brigantines. To this day Arklow Shipping Ltd. has the largest fleet of vessels trading under the Irish flag and boat building still continues to be carried out by Arklow Marine Engineering Ltd. Until recently, wooden boats and ships were being constructed by John Tyrell & Sons Ltd., who designed and built Chichester's Gypsy Moth 3, the Irish sail vessel Asgard 2, numerous fishing vessels, trading vessels, pilot boats and many other types. less
