Saturday May 25. In the morning after breakfast you’ll take a leisurely boat cruise on the River Shannon and enjoy matchless river and lake scenery. After lunch in the picturesque town of Carrick on Shannon we’ll visit O’Carolan’s grave in Kilronan Burial ground. Then we take a unique trip to the Arigna Coal Mines on the County Roscommon border and get a short guided tour underground with a local coal miner who will tell us what it was like to work there. After dinner there will be a special fund raising concert for the Mercy Center in Bangkok founded and run by the extraordinary Irish American humanitarian, Father Joe Meier. The event will feature some of the most famous musicians and singers in County Leitrim including vocalist Eleanor Shanley and Eurovision Song Contest Winner Charlie McGettigan. Lough Allen Hotel
