County Leitrim (Irish: Contae Liatroma), in the Northwest Ireland and Lakelands, is the least densely populated county in Ireland, and until recently its population was still declining. It is place of poor land, large lakes and hills. It is not without charm but it has known a lot of poverty and isolation. Famous nationally for getting its first set of traffic lights installed in 2003, only for them to be subsequently removed, Leitrim once again has a set of traffic lights since 2016.
Its appeal lies primarily in it being an inland county (with the exception of a small section of uninspiring coastline), and it can rightly claim to be the most unspoiled county in Ireland.
