Ancient History

The geographical centre of the Republic of Ireland is located in Roscommon and the inland county has played a pivotal role in Irish history. Its name is derived from 'Ros', a wooded, gentle height, and 'Comán' who was a bishop and saint noted for establishing a monastery in the county.

The north of the county was part of the Moylurg kingdom that covered an area of north-east connacht and was ruled by the MacDermot clan until 1585. Meanwhile the south of the county formed part of the territory of Uí Máine, which was ruled by the O'Kellys from the 8th century until the end of the medieval era.
