It's hard to believe that the workaday village of Ferns was once the powerhouse of the kings of Leinster, in particular Dermot MacMurrough (1110–71), who is forever associated with bringing the Normans to Ireland. The Normans left behind a cathedral, an abbey and a doughty castle, later smashed to pieces by Cromwell.
