Sean Mac Diarmada

The childhood home of Sean MacDiarmada, 1916 proclamation signatory, is open to the public.

Guided tours of original home of Kiltyclogher’s 1916 Proclamation Signatory, Seán MacDiarmada in Corranmore are currently available free of charge on Saturday afternoons from 12pm to 3pm, until Saturday, December 1.
This beautiful cottage is a designated National Monument; owned and very well maintained in its original condition by the Office of Public Works. The cottage is of considerable historic importance, not only as the single existing home place of any of the seven signatories of the 1916 proclamation but as a fine example of an Irish traditional cottage; offering an insight into what life was like over 100 years ago for the majority of rural Ireland residents.
