21. MAIN STREET / DUNKELLIN STREET

Main Street/Dunkellin Street

 53.1985, -8.5674
Loughrea’s existing street plan closely follows that of a medieval layout. Many narrow properties on either side of Dunkellin Street and Main Street occupy burgage plots laid out in the 13th century.

Mob Hill, between Dunkellin Street and Main Street, is the birthplace of Seumas O’Kelly (1881-1918), journalist, author and Abbey Theatre playwright; a plaque in his honour outside the Leinster Leader’s o ces in Naas, Co. Kildare, reads ‘Seumas O’Kelly – a gentle revolutionary’.
