Ballyvaughn



What do you know? I actually have a mural to share for Mural Monday! This one was found in--well, you guessed it, Ballyvaughn. :-)

"Ballyvaughan or Ballyvaghan (Irish: Baile Uí Bheacháin, meaning 'Ó Beachán's townland') is a small harbour village in County Clare, Ireland. It is located on the N67 road on the south shores of Galway Bay, in the northwest corner of The Burren. This position on the coast road and the close proximity to many of the area's sights has turned the village into a local center of tourism activity. At the time of the 2011 Census Ballyvaughan had a population of 258. The area was officially classified as part of the West Clare Gaeltacht, an Irish-speaking community, until 1956" (Wikipedia).




BTW, did you see the children walking to school together? It's that time of year again. :-)

  4. Ah... back to school already. I remember going back to school in England, middle of August and the weather was still warm and sunny. Grrr.... I wanted to stay playing on the beach. Mine go back at the beginning of September.

  10. Interesting name for the town and it looks like a wonderful place to visit. Did you try out the Soda Parlour? Also an interesting name.
