The Leitrim Heritage Office in conjunction with Creative Ireland hosted 'SHOPTALK,' a public talk celebrating Leitrim's shopfronts and their cultural heritage, in particular the county town, Carrick-on-Shannon.
The talk took place in the old book shop on Main Street last Wednesday, August 21 and featured a panel of invited guest speakers. Topics discussed included conservation, planning and cultural heritage.
