Though not a major tourist destination, Tallaght has borne witness to some of the most significant events in Ireland’s history. The region has suffered countless devastating conflicts over the centuries that all but eradicated the physical evidence of the area’s historical significance. However, the diligent records kept by monks at the monastery founded by St. Máel Ruain in 769 AD provide an in-depth insight into Tallaght’s early history. The monastery was the major influence on the lives of early settlers until after the Anglo-Norman invasion of 1179 when it became the property of the archbishop.
Tallaght also provides well for recreation and relaxation, and the Seán Walsh Memorial Park is a stunning example of a beautifully landscaped area shaded by many trees. The park is not only ideal for picnics, but has a purpose-built football stadium that holds 6,000 spectators. From its humble beginnings as a small, sparsely populated village, Tallaght has become a proud Irish town that is well worth a visit.
A flower delivery to Tallaght is certain to be one that includes the very popular lilies, orchids, gerberas, daffodils and roses that thrive on this enchanting Emerald Isle, making this a delightful gift for your friends and loved ones.
