The north side of the L-shaped segment of the town walls in the southwest corner of the parking lot.


Clonmel is one of the many Walled Towns of Ireland and its walls date to the 14th and 15th centuries.
The first 10-year murage charter was granted in 1298, but others followed until the 15th century, to make the town safer against the many attacks from the Irish.

A few sections of the medieval walls can be seen in town.

What I featured in this page are two sections of the town walls that now mark the boundary of a large parking lot in Mary Street, behind a shopping centre.
The first L-shaped section is in the southwest corner of the parking lot, the other section, linear, runs along the north side of the lot.
