    Our tour was organised at short notice and we couldn't have been made more welcome! STEPHEN McLAUGHLIN gave a wonderful talk about the history of the formation of this beautiful Peace Park. Over 1200 Mayo people are named here and this Park is such a tribute to all those Volunteers who wanted to remember all these young people. All thanks to the idea of a small 8-yr-old boy who wanted a place to remember his Grandfather.. Wonderful. The idea started in 1999 and opened in 2008. Every Mayo person should be proud of this beautiful Memoriam Park. It is highly recommended to visit and remember.. THANKS to the lady who drove over 35km to see us and both gentlemen who made us so welcome. THANK YOU!

    Excellent library for local family and area history. Very friendly and helpful staff. Had emailed in advance of our visit to Castlebar area researching my wife's irish grandfather's family (Lavelle) who had lived in Parke / Turlough area and got vlauable information and hints / advice from Jim. Althugh unfortunately we were not able to meet Jim when we visited the Library he had left some notes to to other staff to pass onto us, plus the staff also took time to help us look at local historical maps and other facts abou the life in the area, and possible links to the Lavelle family. There is currently a big detailed exhibition about the French / Irish locals Alliance against the British in 1798 in which it appears some Lavelle's either fought with teh French or were released from Prison at the time. We will return again to continue our research next year and hopefully meet Jim in person. Thanks to all who spoke to at the Library during our visits.

    Walked from Castlebar to the Museum in Turlough and had lunch there before walking back. Over 16 Km in total so a good walk. Some lovely and peaceful sections when away from the road.

    We pop in here for a quick lunch. The menu limited to sandwiches & wraps.
    However our sandwiches were fresh. It was quite busy when we arrived; which shows it popular.
    The server noticed he made a mistake with our order but corrected without a problem. (Probably would have been better to correct it before expecting us to accept the mistake.) When he brought the order over he knew it was wrong.

    Construction of the church to replace the previous St. Mary's commenced in 1876 and virtually stopped in 1885 on the death of the parish priest. In 1891 his successor ordered the demolition of the unfinished structure and set about building the present church. There was evidently a money problem, previous donors were unhappy with the demolition and construction did not commence until 1897 and the church was consecrated in 1901. When I drove into the carpark I noticed that there was no spire, my research indicated that the height of the tower had to be curtailed when funds were required for major repair works following a storm in 1898 during the construction period. It seems odd that such an imposing building still has a tower minus its spire. The stonework is fairly rugged but the stonework to the arched doors and windows and the window mullions are high quality workmanship. The interior is the highlight, with the timber roof construction visible throughout, the high altar with stained glass windows behind, side altars, the pulpit dating to 1908, etc. The church has undergone various restorations and changes over the years, some brought about by the second Vatican Council. Definitely worth a visit if in Castlebar.

    A very impressive stadium, especially under floodlights. The main stand is very big, and the pitch view is excellent from even the most extreme ends of the stand. It probably goes without saying, but this wouldn't be a great attraction to visit, unless there was a match on!
