About Us

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 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.
