Leenane is a small village on the Mayo-Galway border, at the head of Killary harbour, Ireland's only fjord. Leenane is famous for the stunning and varied beauty of its location. It is this which has been attracting artists, sportsmen, geologists and leisure seekers for over 150 years. Sheep dot the high hills, roaming wide and free, and salmon can be seen leaping the beautiful Aasleagh falls at the head of the fjord. The population of our village is approximately 200 people and this is why we are reaching out to you to assist as part of our fundraising campaign.
The Kilbride GAA pitch was previously a fantastic focal point for the community. It was the site of many a friendly game with the surrounding clubs.
We would love to hear your stories and memories of Leenane via our Facebook page or any pictures you would like to share.
Over the years the site has unfortunately become unused and overgrown. However, with your help, we can now move forward and redevelop this site for the whole community and the many visitors we welcome to Leenane each year.
We are eagerly looking forward to the day we invite you all to enjoy the Community Park, make new memories and see a ball kicked along the shore of Killary Harbour again .
The Leenane Development Association is a committee of local volunteers whose sole function is to facilitate growth and improve quality of life within Leenane Village and the surrounding areas for locals and visitors alike.
