This is the county town of Leitrim.
Our driver/guides often pass through
on our chauffeur driven tours of Ireland.
The town has some fine Georgian
houses and shop fronts.
They are a real throwback to old
Costello Chapel can be found at the
top end of Bridge Street.
It was built in 1877 and is
supposedly the second smallest chapel in the world.
Businessman Edward Costelloe had it
erected as a memorial to his young wife.
He is buried next to her in a matching
lead coffin, now protected under glass.
(It is a very similar story to the
Kylemore Abbey love tale)
These are the real hidden gems of
Ireland that the coach tours avoid (not enough kickbacks for them)
