Abbeyleix, County Laois is one of the designated Heritage Towns of Ireland. Project organiser Andy Ring, owner of www.irishheritagetowns.com established www.abbeyleix.irishheritagetowns.com to promote the heritage of Abbeyleix. This project will promote this website and the Abbeyleix heritage video. The objectives of the project are to promote the heritage of Abbeyleix and raise awareness of the 'Heritage Towns of Ireland' more broadly, particularly to an Irish American audience. Every town in Ireland has it’s own story to tell and this project aims to encourage other towns across Ireland to establish their own heritage specific websites.
