Great web site! I'll be visiting Castlebar soon, and will be visiting my relatives in Islandeady. Can you tell me how far it is to Islandeady (can I walk there from Castlebar)? This is where my relatives are. Also, is Derry Courain also a place near there? It is where my great grandfather is listed from. Thanks for all help.
