Republic of Ireland

St. George's Heritage and Visitor Centre is located in St. George's Church and Carrick Workhouse, Carrick On Shannon, County Leitrim.

The restored church, houses a well researched and exciting historical display of artefacts and interpretive material and audio-visual displays depicting the traditions of Leitrim from ancient Gaelic roots through plantation times up to Leitrim's contribution and sacrifice in the Great War. This is seen in the context of Carrick on Shannon's development as a town and the minimal, but historically accurate restoration of the workhouse attic, in which it is reported that 1,896 poor souls deaths were recorded. The workhouse is adjacent to the Fairline Graveyard of Remembrance.
