Dún Chaocháin CD ROM (€15 incl P&P)

This outstanding, bilingual CD on placenames gives an insight into the heritage of Dún Chaocháin – a Gaeltacht area in north Co Mayo. Around 1,500 of these are mapped, with accurate accounts and explanations of their origins. Sounds and photographs of the local environment are given, as well as stories and songs. The CD provides a breadth of information - now made available to the widest public - whether for pure enjoyment or research.

Book entitled ‘Placenames and Heritage of Dún Chaocháin’ (€20 incl P&P)

This bilingual book contains a wealth of folklore on the extraordinary heritage, which is everywhere to be seen in the Gaeltacht of Dún Chaocháin, in Co Mayo. Indeed, the publication is a rich source of learning on many aspects of the living culture of the Gaelic race. There are valuable records of rich, oral tradition which is known by the present generation and is now preserved for future generations.
