    Bannow and the old castle which is in Mr Carews field which was supposed to have been a monastery in olden times. There is a very nice river which flows out to Bannow Bay and through the Ferry from Newtown and Wellingtonbridge. It is very hard to get trees to grow in Bannow. The nicest place in it is the seashore and a song is made about it Bannow's Lonely Shore.
