‘All heritage is local, particularly natural heritage, and local communities are the ultimate custodians of that heritage. The survival of our heritage often depends on action at the local level’. heritagecouncil.ie


Thanks to the Clare River, the main natural feature of the area, it has made the land fertile and has brought people to the area for millennia. An archaeological dig by the river and castle, in 2011, found that even a least a thousand years ago, Claregalway was bustling with human activity.
