Church Lane
Carrick-On-Shannon
Leitrim
Republic of Ireland

The restored church houses a well-researched and exciting historical display of artifacts and interpretive materials, as well as audio-visual displays depicting the traditions of Leitrim from its ancient Gaelic roots through plantation times up to Leitrim's contributions and sacrifices 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.
