Leitrim

County Leitrim is situated in the west of Ireland in the province of Connaught and is one of Ireland's smallest counties. County Leitrim's biggest tourist attractions are its rivers and lakes and its rich tradition of folk music and poetry. The Shannon and the Erne, in the north, are the two main waterways in Ireland and are linked making it the longest navigable waterway in Ireland and the UK. The county is generally hilly and there are several beautiful lakes in the valleys. Many have been given grants in recent years for marinas, piers and fishing stands, making it even better for anglers. The Celtic Tiger came late to the county, but in the 2000’s it experienced unprecedented growth and became the fastest growing county, by population, in Connacht. Carrick-on-Shannon is the county town of Leitrim and the cruising capital of the River Shannon. Known locally as Carrick the town has a modern marina which is packed with cruisers and is ideally situated at the gateway to both the River Shannon to the south and the Shannon-Erne Waterway to the north. Carrick is also widely acknowledged as an anglers paradise. Within a 10km radius of the town there are no fewer than 41 lakes! Drumshanbo, a small town at the end of Lough Allen, Manorhamilton, Mohill and Ballinamore are some of the other large and busy towns in the county. There are many roads routes that the run through County Leitrim.
