I do not know the statistics, but I feel sure that the greatest number of our continental visitors come from France. During the summer you hear and see a lot of French people clutching maps of our small city, wandering about in groups; or lines of young students talking and gesturing happily among themselves, not paying the least attention to their guide. The French are not operatic like the Italians. They share beautiful sounding words; but the face is serious. I feel there is something of Old Europe in the French language.

On Valentine's Day last year, the inaugural Saddle Up for Epilepsy cycle took place in Castlebar. Supporting Epilepsy Ireland, the event was a huge success attracting cyclists from all over Ireland who registered to participate in the first national cycle for Epilepsy Ireland. Feedback from participants was extremely encouraging and the organisers now plan to make Saddle up for Epilepsy 2016 even bigger. Its success was thanks to sponsorship, local fundraising, community volunteering, and the support of celebrities such as Joe Schmidt, Rick O’Shea, Sean Kelly and Taoiseach Enda Kenny who opened the event. The organisers are delighted that these patrons have renewed their support in 2016.
