Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. An Fhairche (called Clonbur in English) is a Gaeltacht village in County Galway, Ireland. The village of Clonbur sits between Lough Corrib and Lough Mask. Two kilometres to the west rises Mount Gable where, according to legend, the hordes of Firbolg assembled on the summit before their confrontation with the Tuatha D Danann at the Battle of Moytura. In more recent times this isthmus became known as the Gap of Danger where the "plainsmen" met the men of Joyce and Flaherty country. Clonbur also contains the ruins of Petersburgh Estate, seat of the Lynch family, one of whose members John Lynch, was a signatory of the American Declaration of Independence.show more
