    Had a great tour through the mines, well off the beaten track but definitely worth a visit. Loved the authenticity of our guide Gerry who worked in the mines before they were shut - he was very informative and funny! Also (unrelated) the view from outside the mines of the surrounding countryside is breathtaking

    You can walk round the ruins, should not take long. But plenty of opportunities for great photos. No entry change.

    Centrally located, I walked to the castle from the town centre.

    Always enjoy visiting this beautiful church amongst the most impressive in Ireland..love the high spire and impressive facade..tastefully decorated throughout. Not really religious now though this building really evokes my cultural Catholicism A must see when in Roscommon town!

    The stadium is home to the Roscommon Galic Teams and a trip to a game there can be great fun. One surprising thing about these Irish games is that the supporters mix and mingle with each without any friction. On a nice warm, sunny day it is fantastic ,on a cold day you would need to be a follewer. Teas and coffee and light snacks are sold on match day all around the stadium. New works are due to upgrade some toilets over the next few months, however it is well worth a visit on any match day.

    The attraction is a sculptural memorial. Co. Roscommon was hard hit by the famine of 1840s. Of the places hard hit, Roscommon Workhouse was one of the worst. The Workhouse which still stands behind the sculpture, was built in 1843, to cater for the acute needs of the people of the area. There was a conflict between rate payers who paid for the workhouse and the non-rate-payers who needed the facilities.In December 1847 this workhouse was in £6,000 debt.The average number of occupants was 1,767 people while relief was given to 21,000in soup kitchens.
