Ballinrobe, on the eastern shores of Lough Mask, is the largest town in South Mayo and is extremely popular with anglers. Its Catholic Church, St Mary's has beautiful stained glass windows by Harry Clarke (1889 - 1931), one of Ireland's most famous stained glass artists.
Just south west of Ballinrobe are some fascination pre-historic sites, most notably Cairn Daithi, a 22 ft high pile of stones which probably covers a Stone Age passage grave. This is associated with the legendary Battle of Moytura, fought between two ancient tribes - The Fir Bolgs and Tuatha de Danann.
