View of the town of Wicklow, in County Wicklow, Ireland, thought to be by Thomas Sautelles Roberts. Situated on the eastern coat of Ireland, a settlement was first established here by St. Mantan in the 5th century, later in the ninth century it became an important Viking trading ventre. By the 17th century Wicklow was a thriving port and an important commercial centre. The name Wicklow is thought to have derived from ‘Vikingalo’ which means meadow of the Vikings or ‘Vik-lo’, meaning meadow of the bay. Wicklow is famed for its beautiful landscape of mountains, valleys, lakes and rivers making it a popular subject for landscape painters.
