Killeshandra, Co. Cavan, Ireland.

With a population of 469, Killeshandra is situated in the heart of Ireland's lakeland region. It is a thriving little village most of whose industry and commerce is centred around the dairy industry and tourism.

In 1846, Slater's Directory described Killeshandra as:

"... a market town and a parish, in the county of Cavan, pleasantly situated on the Croghan, a tributary stream to the Erne. It occupies a romantic site on a gently rising ground, environed by a chain of interesting lakes. This is a flourishing and respectable little place."

These comments, made over 150 years ago, are just as true today. Killeshandra is still a rural village, set in the middle of unspoilt countryside, green fields, forests and dozens of lakes and rivers which form the upper Erne system.

It is the aim of this Web Site, through its articles and photographs, to give you, the visitor, an insight into Killeshandra, into its community and its history, into its rural beauty and its attractions.

I also hope that it will be a site of special interest to those visitors who have been able to trace their family roots to the town or parish of Killeshandra. Through the magic of this new technology you will be be able to visit the land and home of your ancestors.
