The parish of Caherlistrane-Kilcoona is located in North Galway, approximately 6 miles from Tuam and 15 miles from Galway City. Caherlistrane's most prominent landmark, Cnoc Má, is the highest hill in the plains of North Galway and South Mayo, and there is evidence of a major pre-Christian settlement through its ancient remains, including cairns, underground passages and forts. Other places of interest in the parish are Lough Hackett, Cnoc an Dún, Castlehackett House, Lisdonagh House, Ballindiff Castle, Ballindiff Bay and Dabhach Cuana.

Welcome to the Galway Rural Development website. Galway Rural Development, through the programmes we administer, will continue to work along with other agencies, groups and individuals around the county to improve the quality of life for all citizens in our area. We especially wish to work with those who are most in need of assistance, to provide real opportunities for people to gain significant improvements for themselves and their communities throughout rural Galway.
