Keshcarrigan, Co. Leitrim

Keshcarrigan (Irish: Ceis Charraigín, the small rock on the wicker causeway) is a village in County Leitrim. The village is on the R209 road near Lough Scur and Sheebeg. The Shannon-Erne canal links Lough Scur with the River Shannon at Leitrim village and with the River Erne at Belturbet.

In 1798, the French Army under General Humbert passed through on the way to eventual defeat at Ballinamuck. In more recent times, Kesh has been famous for its alternative St Patrick's Day parades over the years which included amongst others, an invisible parade, marshalled by an invisible Pamela Anderson, an indoor parade (in the local pub) and a backwards parade.
