Sligo Port

by Sligo Weekender

The port of Sligo grew from a medieval quay into one of Ireland's principle emigration ports during the famine years. Today exports are on the rise and it is the only working harbour between Galway and Derry. This Autumn, we are delighted to share stories about the industry and people behind the port taken from the Sligo Weekender newspaper archives in an exhibition within our foyer space.
