Indeed,Geashill’s rich heritage is there to be enjoyed by all that visit the National Museum, home to “The Geashill Cauldron”, an artefact dating back to 1546.  The cauldron was originally a brewing pan and after a great battle near the town of Giolla Bindhe near Geashill it became a “secret weapon” of the Lords of UibFailge, the O’Connor, and was used to demoralise the opposing forces by “beating it and causing a great noise”.
