Newmarket on Fergus

Newmarket on Fergus is a town in Co Clare. It is 13km from Ennis, 8km from Shannon Airport and 24km from Limerick. As its name implies, the town lies on the River Fergus. The main N18 Limerick–Ennis road passed through Newmarket until the town was bypassed in 2003. That main bypass road was renamed as the M18 on August 28, 2009 as part of a national programme to increase the amount of motorways available to road users. To the west of the town is Lough Gash, a turlough (disappearing lake) of considerable size. The town has several small shops and public houses. The proximity of Shannon Airport, and the presence of several places of interest nearby (such as Bunratty Castle) brings some tourism to the area, providing business for local bed and breakfast establishments and hotels. There are four primary schools in the town: Scoil na Maighdine Muire/Newmarket-on-Fergus National School, Ballycar National School, Stonehall National School and Clonmoney National School. For secondary education, students attend schools in Ennis and Shannon. The nearest railway station is in Sixmilebridge.
