Foxford, Co. Mayo

 River Moy, Foxford, Co. Mayo

We stayed in Foxford for a few days with Brigid and Harry Feeny and couldn't have had a more relaxing time. The atmosphere was so peaceful and the people we met certainly made a great impression. Thanks to Harry and Brigid for looking after us so well  - the breakfasts were amazing! (See bottom of post)

 Absolutely everyone that we met on our walks along this river bank stopped for a chat :) I think we rush about too much for this at home but I really appreciated it.

Admiral William Brown - an amazing story behind this sculpture. William Brown left Foxford to go to America aged 9, became orphaned soon afterwards but went on to found the Argentine Navy. There's a very interesting little museum which tells the story of his life.
