Letterkenny Holiday Homes Donegal
Letterkenny is the largest town in the County, and the centre of administration, commerce and education. The town is build on a hillside on the banks of the Swilly where it flows into Lough Swilly, and is an excellent centre for visiting north and central Donegal.
‘Leitir’ means a hillside settlement; Leitir Ceanainn means it takes its name from the Ua Cannannáin clan who were kings of Tír Chonaill before the O’Donnells. In the latter half of the 20th century Letterkenny has really come into its own.
The building of the General Hospital, the Letterkenny Institute of technology and other civic and cultural infrastructure such as An Grianán Theatre, the Central Library and County Museum has strengthened Letterkenny’s status as the county’s main town. This has been matched by the expansion of commercial services of all kinds.
