Taghshinny on the R399

Taghshinny, also written as Tashinny, (Irish: Teach Síní) is a village and parish located in South-East County Longford, Ireland, North-East of Ballymahon.

The Church of Ireland church is notable for the large Annaly monument, dedicated to the Gore family who were major landowners in this part of County Longford in the eighteenth century and gained the title Baron Annaly. Their principal residence was Tennelick, which they inherited from the Sankey family, who acquired large estates in Ireland in the seventeenth century, and was just outside Taghshinny.

It lies on the R399 regional road.
