The People and Places of North Mayo video series took a spin to Claggan Island to meet Laurence Howard owner of Claggan Island Coast Guard Station. Originally just a single self catering cottage on the island, when the coast guard station was being redeveloped Laurence decided to include more self-catering to bring visitors to this unspoilt part of North Mayo.
