Carrick-on-Shannon is the county town
of Leitrim, situated at a strategic crossing point of the River
Shannon . The town is the principal cruiser base on the great
river. The present Carrick bridge, built in 1846, took the place
of a nine arch stone bridge, which in turn replaced a wooden
structure. Nearby is the clubhouse of Carrick-on-Shannon Rowing
Club, one of the foremost in the country since its establishment
in 1827. Carrick-on-Shannon is the site of what is thought to
be the second smallest chapel in the world, the 19th Century
Costello chapel on Main street. Also see - Bed
