Loughglynn


Loughglynn, is a picturesque village midway between Castlerea and Ballaghaderreen. Surrounded by six lakes Loughglynn derives its name from the lake situated to the north of the village. This lake, artificial by nature, was built in the early 19th century by Jerrard Strickland, land agent to Viscount Dillon, as a birthday present for Dillon's wife. It is of great ornithological interest and is very important to wildfowl in dry periods in winter.

 

 Another nearby lake, Errit Loch, is one of the most famous fishing lakes in the entire county of Roscommon.
