Aughrim (/ˈɔːkrɪm/; Irish: Eachroim, meaning "horse ridge") is a small town in County Wicklow, Ireland. It lies in a scenic valley in the east of Ireland where the Ow and Derry rivers meet to form the Aughrim river. Aughrim is on the R747 regional road which runs between Arklow and Baltinglass. The Rednagh Bridge south of the village was the site of an engagement during the 1798 rebellion between Crown forces and the rebels. Aughrim has won the Irish Tidy Towns Award for tidiest village in County Wicklow from 1996–2007, and won the Irish Tidy Towns Competition in 2007. There are a number of unusual granite terraced houses throughout the village, constructed - along with a forge, and town hall - at the behest of the Earl of Meath. Aughrim was a granite mining village, and this material is widely used, giving the village a distinctive and coherent architecture. A plaque on the bridge commemorates Anne Devlin, who was employed by and supported Robert Emmet, a revolutionary who was hanged in 1803 for his leadership of an aborted uprising. Aughrim is an important agricultural, horticultural and timber processing village, and has become a popular venue for walkers. The Sean Linehan Way starts by Tinakilly Bridge on the east side of the village, while just to the west the Ciaran Shannon Way can be accessed via the Rednagh Road or by parking at Annacurragh village. Both walks offer a mix of woodland and riverside, with rich bird and wild-life along well-maintained forestry trails and walkways.Wikipedia
