A fleeting visit to Kiltimagh and Knock

Alteration of Kiltimagh, Irish Coillte Mach (older Mághach), the name of a country town in Co. Mayo.” The word “culchie” is derived from the Irish word “coillte”, the plural of coill, the Irish word for “wood”, an area of growing trees. It was used, mainly in Mayo and Galway, by townspeople as a condescending reference to people from rural areas. It came into use in Dublin in the mid sixties as a counter to the country people’s use of the word “Jackeen” for Dublin people. Once referred to ‘The drinking Mecca of the west’! Although Kiltimagh has been blighted by emigration with many pubs and shops now closed down, it has retained its community spirit.

Then A quick diversion to the infamous Knock shrine .
