Letterfrack, Co. Galway
Letterfrack is in beautiful surroundings with fuchsia hedges demonstrating its mild climates; there is good bathing, mountain climbing and hill walking, and the village is an angling centre for the streams and loughs of the neighbourhood.
Short-distance gravelled walks have been laid leading from Letterfrack to Diamond Hill (1,460 feet) giving superb views of sea, mountain and lake en route.
Letterfrack was the location of Marconi's transatlantic wireless receiving station associated with his high power transmitter in Clifden. Its service was transferred to a more modern receiving station in Tywyn, Wales after Marconi's Clifden wireless station was destroyed in 1922 during the Irish Civil War.
