Carrick-on-Shannon

 Carrick-on Shannon is the county town of Co. Leitrim.  It has an excellent art gallery, The Dock, currently showing the work of Sean Lynch, included in the show is Latoon, a  video about the preservation of a whitethorn bush from the construction of the M18 motorway in Clare. An interesting story of the power of folklore in our modern times. The gallery is well worth a visit and it has an excellent gift shop featuring the best of local craft.

Carrick is a charming town with lots to see, It has the smallest chapel in Ireland.The Costello Memorial Chapel,  It was built by a heart-broken husband in memory of his wife, so that they could rest together in death. There are lots of  interesting buildings such as the Old Courthouse, and it is a perfect starting point for a cruise on the river Shannon.
