Parish Information

Caves of Keash

Ballymote Castle


    Ballymote is picturesquely situated under the shadows of Keash Hill, 15 miles south of Sligo town. Once the 2nd largest town in the county, it is an important historical, agricultural, and tourist centre.

    It offers a number of competition stretches in fishing, with Perch, Bream, Pike, and Rudd in abundance. There are also a number of Trout Fishing Lakes, which attract visitors from all over Ireland and Europe.

    G.A.A. football is played in Corran Park, while soccer is played in Bro. Walfrid Kerins' Park; the latter being named after a famous Ballymote man who founded the Glasgow Celtic Football Club.

    Ballymote also boasts an 9 hole golf course, from which many excellent views may be enjoyed of the surrounding countryside.

    Also are tennis courts, and one of the best provincial covered handball alleys in Ireland.
