The village has traditionally had a population of less than 300, but Ireland's recent building boom has seen the population almost double since the turn of the millennium.
Location and accessEdit
Aglish lies 16 km (10 mi) west of Dungarvan and 18 km (11 mi) north of Youghal, and is within the parish of Aglish, Ballinameela and Mount Stuart. Running through the village is the Geosh river, a tributary of the River Blackwater.
The village is home to a 19th-century Catholic church - Eaglais being the Irish-language word for "church" - with a former ruined church cited by the Dungarvan Leader newspaper to have been "pre-invasion". Remnants of two former ruined churches are still to be found alongside each other in the centre of the village, surrounded by an old graveyard dating back to at least 1700.
Local amenities include a national school, village hall, post office, petrol station, two sports pitches, and two pubs.
Sporting success has come through the Geraldines hurling and football teams, while local showjumper Tholm Keane has enjoyed success on the domestic Irish scene. Aglish also won three Waterford senior football titles in 1915, 1922 and 1923. Paddy O'Brien is a nationally renowned singer from the area, who won Irish country music's Gold Star award in 1988. An annual vintage rally gained the village extra attention during its run from 1980 to 1996, and was revived in 2008.
