Glenties is a village in Co Donegal. It is situated where two glens meet, north-west of the Bluestack Mountains, near the confluence of two rivers, the Owenea and Strangalough. Glenties is the largest centre of population in the parish of Iniskeel. One of its most striking buildings is its unusual church, St Connell's, which was built in 1974 to replace the old church. The building has a flat roof sloping to the ground at a sharp angle. The original bell from the first church is still used today in the newer church. The village has a reasonably large tourist trade and boasts a hotel (The Highlands) and a variety of lively pubs and the locally famous 'Limelight' night club which is one of the largest entertainment venues in the county. There are several guesthouses around the village. The majority of visitors come for the area's scenic beauty. St. Connell's Museum and Heritage Center has a good collection of local history artefacts, including some from the famine. The museum is named after St. Connell Caol, who founded a monastic settlement on Inishkeel Island in the 6th century. The museum also has a display about Cardinal Patrick O'Donnell, mementos from the filming of Dancing at Lughnasa, and an extensive display about the County Donegal Railways Joint Committee. It also has a reading room with a good collection of local historic records. The local GAA club is Naomh Conaill while there is both a primary and secondary school in the area.
