Carna, County Galway, Ireland
Additional Location Information
Carna is a small village in Connemara, County Galway, Ireland, located on the country's west coast in the heart of the Gaeltacht and about 50 km west of Galway city. There are four shops, a pharmacy, 2 pubs and one hotel in the village. One of the shops has petrol pumps and an ATM .
Carna is in a strong Gaeltacht region, so most of the people speak Irish at home. The population is almost totally (96 per cent - 2006) bilingual with English being the second language spoken.
Off the coast of Mace Head in the parish of Carna, is Oileán Mhic Dara (Mac Dara's Island). This is the location of a stone-built early Christian church and the cross of Saint Mac Dara, who is the Patron Saint of fishermen and sailors in the area. There is a pilgrimage to the Island once a year on 16 July followed by a race of traditional boats.
Another archaeological gem in the area is a standing stone on Lake Scannive / Loch na Scainimhe, which can still be seen.
