County Monaghan’s vibrant landscape is full of gentle hills, glistening lakes and small idyllic market towns, like Glaslough where Castle Leslie Estate is located. The county is well known as the birthplace of the poet Patrick Kavanagh and the images evoked by his poems and prose relate to rural life at its best, run at a slow pace. The newly refurbished Kavanagh Centre (Opened at the end of 2019) tells the story of Inniskeen’s most famous son – the poet, Patrick Kavanagh using immersive and interactive techniques to inspire visitors. There are 6 key zones in the exhibition and these focus on different times and aspects of Kavanagh’s life.
