Carrickmacross, Co. Monaghan
One of the most imposing buildings in the town is the Roman Catholic Church which was completed in 1866. Of particular significance in the church are the ten beautiful stained-glass windows which were designed by the renowned artist Harry Clarke in 1925. Carrickmacross was the birthplace of poet Patrick Kavanagh.
There is coarse fishing in the lakes near by. The exquisite Carrickmacross lace, which gained the town a great reputation, is still for sale at a local convent.
