Kiltegan

Kiltegan is a pretty village and it won Ireland’s tidiest town previously. Humewood Castle in Kiltegan is where the famous Wicklow rebel leader Michael Dwyer surrendered to Mr. Hume, MP of County Wicklow in 1803. It was agreed that he and his four lieutenants would be pardoned and with their families be sent to America. However, he was informed that he was being sent as a free man to the penal colonies of Australia.
