Reginald’s Tower is the oldest civic urban structure in Ireland and has played an important role in the country’s history. The precursor of this tower is believed to be Dundory, a Viking fortification built on this site during the 10th century. This early fort formed the apex of the triangular Viking settlement and was in all probability a port for Viking longboats. It was strategically located on the high ground between a tidal inlet or branch of St. John’s river in the south east (since drained and now known as The Mall) and the River Suir to the north.
