Interesting Facebook page on the village of Shrule

By Averil Staunton

A very interesting Facebook page on the village of Shrule in County Mayo (on the County Galway border.

The author Sean has great content for people interested in Shrule and can be contacted at

He has put a lovely image of the landmark Shrule Castle on his site and we appreciate his allowing us to use on this site. He goes on to say; 

“Times gone by... and another 20th Century image of Shrule from across the Bridge at the Black River.

Shrule, the name given in 1570 by the Four Masters as Sruthair, is a variation of Sruth or Sruthán: a stream or river.

This interesting photograph is courtesy of Ger Heneghan with thanks to Liam Donoghue for his great work on the image.
