I've just been browsing the 1839 O.S. map of Castlebar and noticed for the first time what appears to be a mini island in the town river between the mouth of Lough Lannagh and the brewery. Does anybody know if it had a name ? When was it removed?
And while I'm at it: when I was growing up in Castlebar, we always referred to the lake as Church Lake and never Lough Lannagh.Was this the practice only in our end of town or was it known by all locals as Church Lake ? Why was it called Church Lake ?
