Shillelagh is a small rural town located in southwest Wicklow. It was planned as part of the Fitzwilliam estate in the 17th century. The town provides a small range of retail and community facilities for the local population. Kerry Foods and Cheshire homes are the main source of employment in the town. The current County Development Plan considers that there is opportunity within the town to facilitate additional employment opportunities. The land zoned in the current County Development Plan has potential to accommodate approximately 83 residential units.
