Ballinamuck is one of the most historic towns in north Longford because of the great battle that was fought there in 1798 between the combined Irish and French forces under General Humbert and General Blake and the English under Lord Cornwallis. The little town and its battle became famous in recent years because of the success of Thomas Flanagan's historic novel "The Year of the French" and subsequent film.
