Droim na Gaoithe nó Radharc na Locha
Claregalway Parish History 750 years, 1999
Lakeview is the name of the townland where the present church, school and community centre lie. The old post office, which was owned by the Cahill family until 1927 was also in this townland. This was situated across the road from Dunleavey’s Bar, not far from the Nine Arches bridge. Local knowledge tells us of a church situated in the same area in the past but very little is known about it.
