I will be in the Sligo area this month and would very much like to visit the Carrowmore Megalithic Cemetery. The trouble is that all of the information I am finding says that the area is only open April through October. Is the entire area gated, fenced, or otherwise closed off in during the 'off season'? Is it possible for me to just park and walk around so long as I understand that the visitor's center is not in operation? Thank you in advance to anyone who can help :-)
I am a confused Yank whose wife has McGowan roots in the Barney area, near both Cloughboley and Ballyconnell, in something called Ballinfull. I understand that Barney is served by the Cloughboley PO. What exactly is "Barney"? A hamlet? A townland? A civil Parish? And what other POs serve the peninsula that consists of an area shown as Drumcliff on some maps (not the town or village of Drumcliff, which holds the remains of William B. Yeats)? And finally, what PO delivers the mail to Dunleavy's Market and to Ellen's Pub and to the immedaite area around the Carrigans cemetery? Help!!!!
My husband and I will be visiting Ireland August 20 to Sept. 2. We will have a free day on August 22 in Sligo. My gggrandfather, Patrick McGuire, was from Moylough, Sligo and my gggrandmouther, Catherine Niland, was from Doocastle, Mayo. I would very much like to visit these towns. Can any one tell me the best way to get there from Sligo City? Is there a bus? taxi? rental car? Any help you can give will be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Susan Lockwood
