Letterkenny, built on the River Swilly, is the main town of Donegal county. It took over the role as the regions main business centre from Londonderry after 1921 (Partition).

The street is dominated by Saint Eunans Cathedral - a late 19th century neo gothic church, containing Celtic like stonework, morble alter and wonderful stained glass windows.
