In the grand tradition of websites dedicated to delivering an internet presence to towns across the globe, we welcome you to Mohill, a small town in Leitrim in the North West of Ireland.  Like all such sites, it presents a very skewed view of the town, its people and surroundings.  It's very biased towards things that are themselves represented on other websites.  The site is also relatively static - no announcements for the things locals care about like the whist drives, the local Show, the bazaars etc.  You'll also find no indication of the crack to be had in the local pubs, the banter to be heard on the street or all the usual things that bring a town to life.

You will however find links to things to do, local accommodation, books of interest, local websites, property for sale in the neighbourhood, pointers to neighbouring towns, local sports clubs, fishing sites, directions for travelling to Mohill, and other sources of information. 

If you are planning to visit Mohill or South Leitrim for the first time, you can get an excellent flavour of the pace of life here by reading some of John McGahern's novels, particularly "That they may face the rising sun" (published as "By the Lake" in the USA) - see here

  • A proposal to open up the Rinn River waterway from the Rinn River Marina near Lough Forbes in Longford through Lough Rinn and on to Mohill opens up an opportunity to regenerate an area of Leitrim and Longford that has been for too long neglected and almost forgotten. The Rinn River Waterway Committee was set up to promote the development of this stretch of waterway.  The Carrick-on-Shannnon branch of IWAI held their annual rally this June Bank Holiday weekend on the river. The rally started at the Rinn River Marina near Clonart Bridge in Longford and made its way to the Lough Rynn Castle Hotel.  Full report here .
