Where can I visit interesting sites in Ireland?
After the plantations in Offaly, the village had been taken over by the Bernard family, who had huge influence in the area. After a tour of Egypt by one of the members of the Bernard family, they commissioned an exact replica of the Egyptian pyramid Cheop to be built in the village. This pyramid now houses 6 members of the Bernard family and is an excellent site to marvel at, especially when it is located in a small village in the midlands of Ireland!
