This town began in 1878 and named for a river in Ireland. Became a key point for the sale of 50,000 acres of Railroad lands to Catholic colonists in Murray County through the activities of Archbishop Ireland and the Catholic Colonization Bureau.

Early erection of a church immigrant house and other public buildings greatly facilitated settlement.
