Our Sligo Gifts
County Sligo has a long history of traditional music.
The megalithic cemetery of Carrowmore is located in County Sligo.
It forms part of a huge complex of Stone Age remains connecting Carrowkeel in South Sligo to the Ox Mountains, to the Cuil Irra Peninsula, where Queen Maeve’s tomb is on the crest of Knocknarea Mountain.
William Butler Yeats, 1865–1939, spent much of his childhood in northern Sligo and the county’s landscapes (particularly the Isle of Innisfree, in Lough Gill) were the inspiration for much of his poetry.
He is buried in North County Sligo, “Under Ben Bulben”, in Drumcliffe.
