Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Binghamstown is a townland and village in County Mayo, Ireland. It lies on the R313 regional road on the Mullet Peninsula, near the town of Belmullet. The townland was originally called Ballymacshedon (the anglicisation of an Irish name), before being renamed Binghamstown. In 1795 Richard Bingham built a castle on the northern reaches of Elly Bay on the Mullet peninsula in Erris, County Mayo. It was built in castlelated style with the offices and gardens commensurate with the full extent of the building. Nothing substantial survives of Bingham castle except for low grass covered foundations. A portion of the castle was pulled down in 1929, and the remainder was subsequently removed over a period of years and the stone used to build later dwellings in the locality.show more
