Carrick-on-shannon is one of 25 places around the country in the running for the The Irish Times “Best Place to Live in Ireland” competition

Carrick is competing against 5 villages, 10 towns of varying sizes, 4 regional cities, one rural district and 5 suburbs or urban villages. The winner will be announced on Monday, June 25. The winning place will receive a location-appropriate plaque or sign noting the accolade. It will also be profiled in the paper and be the subject of a short film commissioned by The Irish Times. Kathleen Coleman submitted the Carrick application, she said “I am bursting with pride when I look at my town Carrick-on-Shannon and what it has become over the past 10 years . . . Carrick is a riverside gem inviting passers-by to rest a while. ‘Come,’ it says, ‘you won’t be disappointed.’
