Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Ballinasloe is a town in the easternmost part of County Galway in Ireland. The town developed as a crossing point on the River Suck, a tributary of the Shannon. The Irish placename - meaning the mouth of the ford of the crowds - reflects this purpose. The latter part of the name suggests the town has been a meeting place since ancient times. The patron saint of Ballinasloe is Saint Grellan, whom tradition believes built the first church in the area at Kilcloony. A local housing estate, the branch of Conradh na Gaeilge, and formerly a school are named after him.show more
