Glaslough or Glasslough (Irish: Glasloch, meaning "green lake") is a village and townland in the north of County Monaghan, Ireland. It is 2 miles south of the border with Northern Ireland and 6 miles northeast of Monaghan Town. Castle Leslie, the large Victorian country house and luxury hotel, is located on the edge of the village.

Castle Leslie, home to an Irish branch of Clan Leslie and located on the 1,000-acre Estate adjacent to the village of Glaslough. The castle is fashioned in the Scottish Baronial style and was designed by the firm of Lanyon, Lynn and Lanyon in 1870 for Sir John Leslie, 1st Baronet, MP. It is situated where an earlier castle stood and never had a defensive purpose. The Estate has three lakes: the largest, Glaslough, shares its name with the local village; Kilvey Lake is to the north; and, finally, there is Dream Lake, which features a crannóg. The 1,000-acre estate comprises park land, meandering streams and several forests. The house is still home to the Leslie family with Sir Jack Leslie in residence and his grandson Roman Leslie, and principal owner Samantha (Sammy) Leslie.

Castle Leslie hit the headlines in 2002 when Sir Paul McCartney married Heather Mills in the family church located on the estate, followed by a wedding banquet for 300 guests. Throughout the years many a famous face has frequented the house including Irish poet WB Yeats, Irish statesman General Michael Collins, Rolling Stones frontman Sir Mick Jagger, British astronomer Sir Patrick Moore and the Duc de Valentinois, not to mention various members of the Churchill family (to whom the Leslies are related).

Another shot of the church where the lesser beatle and miss stumpy hitched the knot. As well as my friends :D The church was closed - which was weird cos it was a sunday :shrug: anyway - had to poke my lens through the gates for this shot :D

Full view this picturesque beast! :boogie:
