The Saints & Sinners History Tour in Moygownagh has featured in the Irish Independent’s “20 new walks in Ireland and around the world to look forward to after lockdown” list.

The parish of Moygownagh, located on the R315 between Crossmolina and Ballycastle, is a small-but-mighty gem in the heart of the North Mayo countryside, boasting some incredible historical secrets.

Saints & Sinners History Tour

The unique Saints and Sinners Tour is a self-guide smartphone app, which guides visitors around fourteen wonderful heritage sites in Moygownagh, similar to the Blanemore Forest Archaeological Walk guide launched two years ago. With GPS enabled guidance, used with text, audio and video information for each site, the tour breathes new life into poignant survivors of our local history, in and around the village of Moygownagh.

The Saints & Sinners Tour makes for a lovely day hike. The tour is also now available as a virtual guide, with audio commentary, videos and guide book text, via their website – especially relevant during the Covid-19 lockdown! So you can visit Moygownagh in your bedroom (or wherever you use your laptop!).
