Maumeen is a mountain pass in Connemara, that links the Maum and Inagh Valleys through the Maumturk mountains. The name comes from the Irish “Maum na Ean” which literally means “Pass of the Birds”. Two thousand years ago Maumeen was an important Celtic shrine. The site was then claimed by the early Christian church who turned it into a shrine dedicated to Saint Patrick. During the 17th and 18th Centuries the “Penal Laws” outlawed the Catholic church. During this period Maumeen was used as a type of clandestine outdoor church known as a “mass rock”. After the repeal of the Penal Laws in the mid-19th Century, Maumeen returned to being the destination of an annual pilgrimage however, in the early years of the 20th Century, the Catholic church withdrew its support of the pilgrimage due to its reputation for partying rather than for piety. In the last thirty years the tradition of a pilgrimage was re-established. Where once there was the outdoor mass rock, a small chapel called “CiIIin Phédraig”, dedicated to St. Patrick, has now been built. #Maumeen #Connemara #Galway #VisitGalway

Along the Maumeen Pass, you will find “CiIIin Phédraig”, a small chapel dedicated to St. Patrick. The chapel is built on the site of a mass rock, where Catholic mass would have been held in secret during the penal laws era #Maumeen #Connemara #Galway #VisitGalway visit_galway photo

Our #picoftheday is of the shipwreck of the #MVPlassey on #Inisheer. In 1960, the ship was caught in a severe storm and ran onto Finnis Rock. Weeks later a second storm then washed the ship off the rock and drove it on to the shoreline, #InísÓirr #AranIslands #Galway #VisitGalway visit_galway photo
