'Drumsna stands on a bend in the Shannon; the street leads down to a bridge, passing over which one finds oneself in the county Roscommon; and the road runs by the well wooded demesne of Sir Gilbert King; moreover there is a beautiful little hill, from which the demesne, river bridge and village can all be seen'

Anthony Trollope
