The church in Coosan.

Coosan is a suburb just north of Athlone, County Westmeath. Surrounded on three sides by Lough Ree and one side by Athlone town itself, its population has grown since the Celtic Tiger from around 400 in the 1990s to roughly 5000 in the early 21st century. Due to its location on the edge of Lough Ree, it attracts many tourists over the summer months, drawing in revenue for the area. Coosan is divided into four 'quarters': Castlequarter, Hillquarter, Meehanquarter and Woodquarter. Queen of Peace church in Coosan was opened in 1973. It has a large regular attendance.
