Tralee was founded around 1216 by John FitzThomas Fitzgerald, an Anglo Norman Knight It grew up around the Great Castle of Tralee and Dominican Abbey founded by Fitzgerald. Prehistory has it as the scene of a famous battle between the Milesians (our Celtic ancestors) led by Queen Scotia and the Tuatha De Danann. Recent archaeological excavations have uncovered relics of Neolithic man at Ballycarthy on the N21 approach while the Early Christian church in Rathass Cemetery predates the medieval town. Unfortunately, due to its troubled past (the town was destroyed on four occasions) little of the medieval Geraldine town survives and the present town took its present form in the 18th century when the Denny family held precedence.
