Ireland // Sligo, Leitrim and Roscommon //

South Sligo

South Sligo’s attractions are spread over a wide area, ranging from the glorious Lough Arrow in the east, via megalithic sites, such as Heapstown Cairn and the atmospheric Carrowkeel Cemetery, set in the Bricklieve Mountains, to the equally gorgeous Lough Talt in the west.
