The picturesque village is located on the border of counties Leitrim and Roscommon, about eight miles Northwest of the town of Longford.

Roosky’s five-arch masonry bridge was built in 1845 to provide a vital river crossing. In 1922, it was the venue for a battle in the Irish Civil War.

This image was captured during an evening walk along the river — Roosky has a beautiful hiking and biking path that stretches from the village to the Roosky Lock, built in the 1840s to accommodate river navigation.
