Quiet street in rural Irish town. Callan is an interesting and vibrant town with restaurants, cafés and pubs as well as two caring communities Larche and Camphill and many artistic endeavours. There is a strong community spirit, with an exciting annual festival called the Abhainn Ri festival and active sport and heritage groups. There are two petrol stations and two large super markets, lots of family owned smaller shops ( drapery, laundrette, bakery, butcher, florist). There is a doctors practice and an excellent dental surgery. There are many national heritage sites and monuments in Callan including the beautiful abbey meadow, St. Mary's church and the moate field. Just over the bridge there is Keoghs bakery which is a 7th generation bakery with an ancient oven of which it is one of only three remaining in use in Ireland, delicious bread! It is a lovely town.
