I have mentioned recently Sir William Wilde’s energetic guide to Lough Corrib - Its shores and Islands (published 1867), and his excitement as he and his family steamed across Ireland from Dublin, to begin their long summer holiday at their holiday home, Moytura Lodge, Cong, at the very north of the lake. From steam train to the Eglinton steamer, which left Galway every day to service the villages on the lakeshore, including Cong, the Wildes steamed passed the ancient home of the Blakes at Menlough (Menlo)* located just before the river enters the great lake.
The fourth annual Gathering of the Mannion Clan will take place in the village of Menlough in East Galway next weekend Friday and Saturday August 18-19 as National Heritage Week 2017 gets under way. Heritage will undoubtedly form the central theme of this year’s Mannion Rally, which will see the unveiling of new welcome name-stones bearing the village’s full Irish-language name Mionlach Uí Mhainnín (the small lough of the Mannions) on all approach roads.
