15 gorgeous shots of Carrick-on-Shannon that prove it's more than just hens and stags


RTÉ 2′S NEW documentary Carrick-On-Stag is an eye-opening account of the hens and stags that descend on the Leitrim town every weekend.

Last night, it featured a male stripper called the ‘G-String King’ and all sorts of other shenanigans besides. But it’s not just there for the sessions, Carrick is also LOVELY:

1. Look at this year’s Christmas market in the town

13. The county town of Leitrim might be small

14. But it’s absolutely gorgeous at the same time

Because of course the tiniest church in Europe is here, and directly adjacent to a pub. #carrickonshannon
