Gorthaganny

Gorthaganny is a small village on the westerly rim of Roscommon bordering Co. Mayo. It is situated on the R293 halfway between Loughglynn and Ballyhaunis.

Lake Errit in Gorthaganny is the perfect place to go to take part in a variety of activities. Relax along its peaceful shores, take some time out to fish or for the more adventurous learn how to kayak!

Gorthaganny is home to the famous Roscommon footballer Dermot Earley. A memorial was unveiled in his honor in August 2011. In the words of Martin Walshe ”It is a fitting tribute to our Hero Dermot, a great leader, an outstanding sportsman and a true gentleman.”
