About 1. The Old Market House

1. The Old Market House in Clones, Co. Monaghan.

The tour starts outside the town's old Market House which served until recently as the headquarters of Monaghan County Library.

The original market house was built in 1746 at a time when the linen trade had started to take off in Clones. That building was replaced by the current edifice in 1843. The date can be seen with the local landlord's initials TBL (Thomas Barrett Lennard) in the wrought iron work on the building.

The size and scale of the buildings on the Diamond, the majority of which date from the 19th Century, indicate the commercial importance of Clones as a central market place for South Ulster at that time.
