Cavan, Co. Cavan
Cavan (An Cabhán in Irish, meaning "the hollow") is the main town and administrative centre of County Cavan. The town lies in the north east of Ireland, along the border with Northern Ireland. The N3 road connects the town to Dublin. It is interesting because of its unusual layout, Cavan was the only medieval town in Ireland founded by the Irish themselves, and its narrow streets still follow the same pattern that was set down seven centuries ago.
