Castle Street, Athlone.
|Main Creator:||O'Brien, Gearoid, photographer|
This street in the shadow of Athlone Castle came into its own with the opening of the Bridge in 1844. Prior to this the bridge across the Shannon ran behind the Castle and this street was no more than a small residential laneway with houses on either side of the road. This view, looking down Castle Street into Main Street highlights some of the recent re-development in this area.
