Athlone City centre

From the bridge, the main road turns eastwards towards Dublin Gate. On a bend on the left side of the road stand the ruins of Devenish Court (private). This James 1 style house (1620) was destroyed in 1622. The house where John McCormack was born can be found in The Bawn, a small street on the left. The Franciscan church (1931), to the south of the main street, was built in a neo-Romanesque Irish style.
