Knockranny, derived from Cnoc Raithí (Hill of the Forts) was part of the old Kilronan Estate. The area’s main claim to fame is that the renowned Turlough O’Carolan, the blind composer and harpist is buried here. This amenity gem is well worth diverting to, as it offers historic sites, many viewing points and an ever changing lakeshore accommodating all the local Flora and Fauna in total harmony. Holy Wells, Crannógs, Ring – Forts and Tombs complete the historical picture of this mysterious oasis in time.
