Monaghan Area Map.pdf
Monaghan is a lively town with some wonderful architecture that can best be appreciated on foot.  Incorporated by James I in 1613, Monaghan was once a base of the MacMahons who ruled this territory for centuries, setting up here formally in the 14th century. The 17th century was a tempestuous one for Monaghan with power over it changing hands between the Irish and English several times before residing in English hands after the Williamite conquest of the early 1690s. For the next two centuries it was basically a Presbyterian town and a colonial centre of commerce and local government.

On Hill Street, in the town centre, is the County Museum which is home to a vast array of historical artifacts, including the important Cross of Clogher dating from the 14th Century. Building commenced on the magnificent St Macartan’s Cathedral in 1862. It was built in the neo-gothic style and contains interesting Stations of the Cross and tapestries. It was constructed using limestone from a local quarry near Old Cross Square. Other buildings of particular note around the town include the original 17th c. Market House, the Courthouse, St Patrick’s Church of
Ireland, and the First Monaghan Presbyterian Church. The Rossmore Memorial and the Market Cross are also of historical interest. There is a signed Heritage Trail in place in the town which includes these interesting buildings and brochures of the trail are available in the Tourist Office, Town Hall, Market House, County Museum and local library.

The town also boasts a Leisure Complex, a pitch & putt course and good shopping facilities.  It also has excellent entertainment facilities with varied year-round programmes on offer at the Market House and the  Garage Theatre.
