St. George’s Heritage& Visitor Centre

St. George’s Church, built in 1827 has been a place of Church of Ireland worship for nearly 200 years.  In 2005, the Church was restored and refurbished which included the building of new visitor centre.

The visitor centre is the starting point for the St. George’s Tour.  The visitor can view ‘Leitrim-Enduring and Enchanting’ and the important Se Geraghty Collection including original papers from the Clements Estate (Lord Leitrim).   The tour then moves to St. George’s Church with exhibits of important ecclesiastical silver, books, medals and trophies.  A rare Telford Organ (1847), the second oldest organ in Ireland takes pride of place in the Church.   Opposite the altar is the beautiful  Plagemann (1805-1866) work “The Adoration of the Shepherds”.
