Ballinrobe, Co. Mayo
Its Catholic Church, St Mary's has beautiful stained glass windows by Harry Clarke (1889 - 1931), one of Ireland's most famous stained glass artists.
Ballinrobe has the only horse racing track in County Mayo and also has a championship golf course. It is also a very popular base for anglers.
Just south west of Ballinrobe are some fascination pre-historic sites, most notably Cairn Daithi, a 22 ft high pile of stones which probably covers a Stone Age passage grave. This is associated with the legendary Battle of Moytura, fought between two ancient tribes - The Fir Bolgs and Tuatha de Danann.
