Ballinlough, Cloonalough, Cloontarsna, Granlahan

Wondering about the distances between these towns- are they walkable or must one have transportation? Is there a local bus service between them?

Thanks!

Would definitely recommend visiting Avigna mining experience and the museum of country life in Castlebar as I visited there when I was staying in County Roscommon last year. I found county Roscommon to be very rural, but beautiful, shame not many people seem to visit it.

@ Tarry11 and anyone else visiting the Arigna Mining Experience, there is a National Waymarked Trail in that same area of north Co Roscommon.

It also involves neighboring parts of counties Leitrim and Sligo.

It's full title is the Arigna Miner's Trail and Historical Trail:

Or, a Scenic Drive version:

Another village in the general area of Ballinlough (closer to the border with north Galway), is Cloonfad, which has a Sli na Slainte - roughly translated: A Walk for your Health:

I am researching the history of my great great grandfather Michael Dalton and his wife Charlotte Reynolds who lived in Ballinlough in the 1860s.

See here under Births for 24th August, 1867:

http://www.daltondatabank.org/roscommon.htm

And, note the very first entry here under Royal Irish Constabulary Records - Part 1:

daltondatabank.org/Rep_Ireland_Constabulator…

And, mention of Dalton from Castlereagh, Co Roscommon here:

readhistory.co.uk/family-trees/…direct.htm

(The modern rendition of the Co Roscommon Castlereagh is Castlerea and is pronounced castle-REE).

Good luck with your research!

Hi there, I'm from this area (Granlahan/Ballinlough) and would definitly suggest renting a car for convenience. Walking around these areas is very pleasant when the weathar is nice. We do get a lot of rain so therefore a car is a good idea. As others have mentioned there is a lot to see and do not to far away! Good Luck
