Fethard at Home
Dedicated to the Fethard and Killusty emigrants throughout the world, the site is maintained by Joe Kenny. He offers day-to-day happenings in the area and also covers a lot of the history of Fethard as well as aerial photographs that he, himself, has taken of Fethard and the surrounding Irish countryside. In addition to that, he has recorded numerous genealogical records including the transcription of headstones of various Irish generations who are at rest in some of the local cemeteries. Anyone who might be interested can access this information as the site is a labor of love and is free of charge.
Cultural Holidays on Inis Mór
Whether or not you're planning a trip to the Aran Isles, this richly informative site is well worth exploring.
Our area is rich in legend, culture and folklore. Our scenery equals - and often surpasses - that found in other parts of Ireland. And yet, how often do we find any reference to the Finn Valley in Irish tourism information? The promoters seem to see us as that great, gaping void in the middle of Donegal - where nothing of note has ever happened - or is ever likely to happen. Finn Valley Online is here to change that perception.
Located on the west coast of Ireland, Clare is home to the Burren, the Cliffs of Moher and is a jumping off point for the Aran Islands. If Co. Clare is on your itinerary, this site will help you make the most of your visit.
Discover the magic of West Ireland.
If you're planning a trip to Galway, Mayo or Roscommon, this site specializes in arranging self-catering accommodations - from apartments in the heart of Galway city to charming thatched cottages on Inisheer. The site is easy to navigate and well worth exploring, if only to take a peek at the homes available for rent.

The Galway Hooker
This unique vessel, with its distinctive curved lines and bright red sails, originated in the village of Claddagh. During the 19th century, hookers supported a significant fishing industry and also carried goods, livestock and fuel. Seán Rainey is remembered for building the last of the original boats, the Truelight, for Martin Oliver who was to become the last king of the Claddagh; as king, he was entitled to white sails on his boat. Since the mid seventies, many of the old sailing craft which were on the verge of extinction have been lovingly restored and new ones have been built. During the summer months they can be seen at festivals such a Cruinniú na mBád - the Gathering of the Boats - in Kinvara.
