Local Highlights

The Coleman Traditional Irish Music Centre

The Michael Coleman Heritage Centre draws together the many strands of the South Sligo musical tradition. The main building is a focal point for the living tradition, for which the area is so rightly famous and houses a theatre, a large audio-visual display on South Sligo, its music and the life of Michael Coleman.

Interactive touch-screen facilities provide information on traditional music and instruments and a selection of music performed by local musicians. Well-known exponents of the south Sligo style of traditional music give classes in a wide variety of instruments.
A few miles west of Gurteen is the Coleman home which was integral in the development of traditional music in the area. A music archive, one of the most important elements of the whole project, is housed here.

Moygara Castle

Moygara Castle, Co Sligo (Monument No.: SL 044-05201) appears to be mainly late 16th or early 17th century in date. It consists of a large square bawn (51m North / South by 51m East-West), which has a residential tower, each slightly angled in shape, at each of its four corners. A gatehouse occurs along its Western side. The historical evidence and field remain at the site, however, suggest that an earlier tower house, whose foundations are still visible, existed along the Northern side of the bawn wall.
