Ballinrobe, Co. Mayo

 Ballinrobe (Irish: Baile an Róba) is a thriving market town in County Mayo, it is located on the River Robe, which empties into Lough Mask two kilometers to the west.

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.
