Sports is a major part of North Mayo history and culture. The Lost Legends – Mayo’s Enigmatic Sports Stars exhibition in the North Mayo Heritage Centre explores the theme of sports and emigration through the stories of four Mayo people. The event offers a glimpse into the Ireland of emigration times.  County Mayo has had a long history of emigration for reasons of economics or famine. Men and women left their homes to travel all over the world seeking a better life. This exhibition tells the unique ‘untold’ stories of four such people who would go on to excel in sport in their adopted countries.
