History:  

AVOCA, a city in sections 27, 28, 33, and 34 of Lime Lake Township, was named in 1879 by Archbishop John Ireland, who founded near it a Catholic colony of immigrant farmers. The name is taken from a river in County Wicklow, Ireland, about 40 miles south of Dublin, noted for the picturesque beauty of its valley, called Sweet Vale of Avoca in a poem by Thomas Moore. From the fame given by the poet's praise, this name also has been chosen for villages in 13 other states of the Union.
