Ballykeeran - The Way of Ciaran. Situated north of Athlone where the Breensford River joins Lough Ree, Ballykeeran derives its name from Saint Ciaran the founder of the great University of Clonmacnoise, who lived on Hare Island before founding Clonmacnoise. The remains of a corn mill can still be seen in the Village. The Dog and Duck Pub is very inviting as it stands between the "High Road" and the "Low Road" to Glasson.
