Ballinamore, Co. Leitrim

Ballinamore (Irish: Béal an Átha Móir meaning the "Mouth of the Big Ford") is a small town in County Leitrim lying 24km (15 miles) from the border of Northern Ireland. It was the main crossing point of the Yellow River that runs through the bottom of the town. This waterway become known as the Ballinamore-Ballyconnell canal, built to link the Rivers Erne and Shannon in the 1840s and recently changed again to the Shannon-Erne Waterway. Ballinamore is built in what was known as the Valley of the Black Pig, the name given on the ancient frontier of Ulster in the fourth century.
