I would suggest a couple of things
Hand written descriptions by a number of people of their daily lives, sealed by them with a guarantee it wont be opened in our lifetimes.
A large paper map of Castlebar with actual business names and local (non-official) names for places.
Video footage, interviews with prominent people shots from inside pubs, barbers, offices -- capture what day to day looks like for people.
A copy of the local regional news paper from the day.
Expanding on the first idea, of hand written descriptions.. how about a digital vault of files. Something that is open to everyone to submit whatever they wish from photos, messages, video etc.
Creating a capsule that will stand the test of time will be the main challenge and could be quite expensive. If any form of digital or analogue media is included also include the means to access it i.e. in you include a cd you should also include a cd player.
