Ballyleague is a picturesque village situated on the Roscommon side of the Longford/Roscommon Border. The island-studded Lough Ree is just to the south and stretches almost 30 km to Athlone: while upstream the Shannon meanders 40 km to Carrick on Shannon and beyond to the Shannon-Erne Waterway. The bridge which crosses the River Shannon separates the two counties here. Ballyleague is effectively a 2 in 1 town with Ballyleague running into Lanesboro on the townland of the Longford side of the bridge. Ballyleague is a renowned fishing spot with the local power station leading to what is known as the “hot water stretch” which leads to good stocks of fish every year.
