Naomh Padraig Estate
Naomh Padraig Estate (St Patrick’s) is a council housing estate of 40 houses located in Drumshanbo, Co. Leitrim just over the highest point of the Hilly Road in the townland of Drumcoura.
Drumcoura (from the old Irish ‘druim – cumra’ or ‘druim -cubhra’) means ‘sweet-scented ridge’, describing the fragrant wildflowers and herbs once abundant in the locality. We still have wildflowers here wherever they are allowed to flourish.
Just below the estate is Drumshanbo Enterprise Centre, and above it is farm land, and the privately owned An Grianán housing estate, which is currently listed as a ‘ghost estate’. Across the road is farmland bounded by hedgerows and trees. This is a beautiful location and a pleasant and peaceful place to live.
