Sarsfields Ride Tipperary

What is this picture saying to tourists?
This picture was taken on the "Sarsfield Ride" near Newport in Tipperary. This is along the route that Patrick Sarsfield the 1st Earl of Lucan took when he captured a Williamite convoy of military stores in a bold attack. This lead to a prolonged siege of the city of Limerick to the winter and the English had to give up.
