The most notable local features are a golf club and the parish cemetery for Sallins. The cemetery is best known as the gravesite of Theobald Wolfe Tone, the eighteenth-century Irish revolutionary and leader of the Society of the United Irishmen. Commemorations are held at the grave every June by various parties of the Irish Republican tradition. These commemorations were begun by members of the Irish Republican Brotherhood in the late nineteenth century.
There is also a ballad, "Tone's Grave," popularly known as "Bodenstown churchyard", which celebrates and commemorates the life of Wolfe Tone.
