Local points of interest
Lady Baltimore’s Statue
(beside Johnston’s Bridge)
Baltimore in Maryland, USA is named after a place in Bornacoola parish (Baile an Tigh Mor- the town of the big house). The family left Ireland and settled in Maryland and because of this link the statue to Lady Baltimore was sent back to Ireland in the 1970’s and erected some years later.
This ancient stone can be seen in Cloonmorris graveyard
