Turlough O' Carolan, (1670-1738) the famous 17th century blind Irish harper lived in Mohill for a while and a bronze statue commemorating this inspired composer and musican can be seen in the town. The fact that over a dozen angling waters lie within a 10 minute drive makes Mohill a popular angling centre. Rev. Arthur Hyde, grandfather of Ireland's first President, Douglas Hyde, was rector here in the 19th century.
