Kilnaleck Holiday Homes Cavan

Kilnaleck is a quaint village in South West Cavan about 12km from the Longford border. The village is being developed as a centre of excellence for angling with nearby Corglass Lake and Kill Lake providing good bank coarse fishing.

Overall Kilnaleck is an ideal base for exploring the midlands and lakeland areas of Ireland

There are several good examples of prehistoric remains close to the village. At Carrickacroy, there is a cromlech, a portal tomb which dates from at least 2000 BC. This consisted originally of a burial chamber, entered by a door.

One of the supporting jambs of the door is still standing, but most of the other stones have fallen.

Nearby Ballintemple also shows evidence of a late Iron Age rath or fort. Also nearby are the remains of Crosserlough church, which was originally built in the later Middle Ages. Crosserlough Catholic church, opened in 1888, was built to a design by William Hague Jnr.
