This petty kingdom (Irish: ) of Munster and formed a border with the Kingdom of Meath to the east.
Crinkill Barracks became the depot of the Prince of Wales's Leinster Regiment (Royal Canadians) from 1881.
The barracks at Birr was burned down in 1922 during the Irish Civil War and the outer perimeter wall is all that remains. The column in the centre of the square dates from 1747 and was built to carry the statue of the Duke of Cumberland, known as the Bloody Duke and the victor of the Battle of Culloden.
