Mohill, Co. Leitrim

Mohill (Irish: Maothail) is a town in the south of the County Leitrim. The town of Carrick-on-Shannon is approximately 16km (10 miles) away.

Mohill, or Maothail Manachain, is named for St. Manachan who founded a monastery there as early as 500AD. The town has not grown as quickly or achieved as much devolpment for tourism as neighbouring towns such as Carrick-on-Shannon or Ballinamore, which are aided by the River Shannon in attracting visitors.

The town is built on a slope toward the River Rynn and ownership of the town passed to the Crofton family during the plantations and areas around the town were owned by the Clements family (Lord Leitrim), who built the nearby Lough Rynn estate and was also the owner of what is now Áras an Uachtaráin.

Mohill is a popular angling centre as over a dozen angling waters lie within a 10 minute drive.

Mohill is also closely associated with Turlough O'Carolan , the famous 17th century blind harpist, who lived in the town after his marriage.

The town celebrates an annual fair, Monaghan Day (named for St Manachan), on 25 February and hosts a large Agricultural Show and Summer festival in August.
