The castle given to William Penn before he settled in Pennsylvania and started his Holy Experiment is also situated here approximately 2 miles from the house he was born in. Also to be found in Shanagarry is the historic Old Road, an ancient Irish causeway and home to the original residents of the village. This is also the home village of the Russell Rovers hurling and football team. The team is made up of people from Shanagarry, Ballycotton and Churchtown South.
