Conradh na Gaeilge, also known as the Gaelic League, was founded by Douglas Hyde and Eoin McNeill in July 1893. Their aim was to keep the Irish language alive and preserve the Gaelic elements of Ireland’s culture. It was open to all creeds, was non-political, and accepted women on an equal basis. It used a broad approach, organising classes and competitions in Irish music, dancing, literature, and games. After a sluggish six years in existence, it suddenly morphed into a mass movement.
A research project into the history of Castlebar Town Council and its preceding authorities spanning four centuries is being undertaken by local man Noel Campbell. The project, with the working title A History of Castlebar Town Council - its predecessors, personalities and events, is a recording of the responsibilities of each authority, the various colourful people who sat on them and the local and national events that shaped them. The work begins in detail in the 1830s and will run up until the last local elections of 2009.
