Longford County is located on the northern area of the province of Leinster. The area was one of the Gaelic Irish settlements that did not rise from a Norman or Viking origin. The name Longford means “ship dock,” which is notable considering that the settlement is built alongside the Camlin River, a tributary that feeds into the Shannon River.

Today, Longford has a population of roughly [forty] thousand. The county boasts beautiful scenery and architecture rich in historical significance. Notable places of interest and tourism include the Cathedral Church of Saint Mel, dedicated to another missionary who joined Saint Patrick in his movement to spread Catholicism throughout Ireland. Other tourism sites include the various dolmens scattered around the county. Dolmens offer a mysterious portal into the history of Ireland, and many can be traced back to the third or even fourth millennia B.C.E.
