History of Killaloe
Just over a 1000 years ago Brian Boru, the High King of Ireland, lived in Killaloe in his palace called “Kincora”. During that periode Killaloe was in a way the capital of Ireland! Brian Boru and his men defeated the Vikings at the battle of Clontarf. His fort was located at the strategic point where the Shannon flows out of Lough Derg. Every summer there is a Brian Boru festival in Killaloe.
