Leitrim suffered severely in  the Great Famine and the population declined badly.

Coal mining became prominent in the 19th century  in Sliabh an Iariann and  Arigna  on the Roscommon border.

Leitrim is bordered by Donegal to the north, Fermanagh to the northeast, and Cavan to the east,  Longford to the south and, to the west Roscommon and Sligo.

Leitrim offers scenic views of Lough Allen and the River Shannon.
