Emigration from Erris
Our history is their history and theirs is ours. By remembering the people who left, we welcome back their descendants.

Two years ago, in July 2013, golfers & golf journalists from all over the world enjoyed the official opening event of the Kilmore nine holes at Carne Golf Links. Needless to say, the new nine holes have been greatly acclaimed since, being deemed “challenging”, “magnificent” and “stunning”. According to Robin Hiseman of European Golf Design, “Carne now has 27 of the most dramatic duneland holes in the world.” High praise, indeed!

At that time, which was the year of The Gathering, the visiting golfers also enjoyed another picturesque event in the nearby villages of Eachléim (Aughleam) and An Fód Dubh (Blacksod). A special commemorative garden in Blacksod was launched – a kind of “reverse Ellis Island” at the bottom.
