Furbo, Co. Galway

Na Forbacha (formerly Furbo) is a settlement with a population of around 800 in Connemara in County Galway. It lies along the coast between Barna and An Spidéal. It is the first settlement to the west of Galway where Irish is the language used in the school, church and at community meetings.

It has a typical Gaeltacht style of settlement with no village street or centre, but rather comprises of around fourteen townlands, most of which run North to South from the bog to the foreshore. Although the settlement is approximately 12km from Galway city centre it has maintained its rural nature quite successfully in recent years due to strong opposition to large scale development from locals.

Trá na bhForbacha is a pleasant and safe beach for bathing.
