TULLOW (or TULLGPHELIM) SLATER’S 1894 TULLOW (or TULLGPHELIM) is a market town and parish, part of the town being in the parish of Fennagh, in the barony of Rathvilly, co. Carlow, head of a dispensary district and petty sessional division, in the union of Carlow, Protestant diocese of Leighlin, Catholic diocese of Kildare and Leighlin, with a terminal station on a branch line of the Great Southern and Western railway, 48 miles south from Dublin, 8 south-east from Carlow, pleasantly seated on the banks of the Slaney and close to the borders of Wicklow county.

The river is crossed by a bridge of five arches, erected, according to an inscription on it, in 1767. The town was once called Tullophelim, and conferred the title of viscount upon two branches of the Butler family, both of which have been extinct for many years, and the name as applied to the place has all but become obsolete. The business of the town is confined chiefly to a spacious market square and two streets, Bridge street and Mill street; there are also a few other streets, consisting chiefly of inferior class of houses. The Court house is spacious and quarter sessions for the barony are held in it and petty sessions every 2nd Saturday. The other public institutions are a fever hospital, with a dispensary attached, a Protestant school, a convent and a monastery.

The members of both the latter establishments receive boarders for education, and also superintend gratuitously the instruction of the poorer children. A branch of the National Bank is in the town. The places of worship are the Protestant church and one belonging to the Catholics, the latter a spacious structure, having three galleries and a lofty steeple.
