Ballinrobe

Ballinrobe, on the eastern shores of Lough Mask, is the largest town in South Mayo and is very popular with anglers. Its Catholic Saint Mary's, has nine beautiful stained glass windows by renowned Irish stained glass artist, Harry Clarke (1889-1931). On the North side of town stands the remains of an Augustinian friary, founded circa 1312. Just south-west of Ballinrobe are some fascinating pre-historic sites, such as Cairn Daithi, a 22ft high pile of stones which probably covers a passage grave.
