Mullingar comes from the Irish "An Muilleann Cearr" which means the wyr mill or the left hand wise moving mill. It is derived from the legend of Saint Colman of Lynn in the 7th century. Mullingar is located near to the lakes of the midlands, such as Lough Owel, Lough Ennell, Lough Derravaragh and Lough Lee. It is the ideal location for tourists interested in fishing and water sports. There is also golf and horse riding available locally. The population of the town, according to the 1996 cenus, is 12,196, which rises to over 30,000 within a 16km radius.
