Moygownagh, from the Irish meaning means “Plain of the Milch Cows”, is a parish in North Mayo.

Glenmore House was known locally as the ‘Big House’ or the Landlords house. It was built in 1790 with the stones quarried from the nearby wood.

Walkers may experience the unique beauty of the 15km Moygownagh Walk, as you travel from green drumlin belt farms of the Moy-Valley to blanket bogs, via Blanemore Forest on a ridge that overlooks the ancient pine forests of the Bronze age.

Blanemore Forest Walk has specially laid rubber matted boardwalks and information signs to explore the sacred tombs and field walls of its first Neolithic farmers.

It is the headquarters of the leading organization in women’s development in North Mayo – Women of the North West.
