Property Description:

Ros Muc is a village in the heart of the Conamara Gaeltacht of County Galway, Ireland. It lies halfway between the town of Clifden and the city of Galway. Irish is the predominant spoken language.It is estimated that people first settled in Rosmuc in 400, one hundred years before Naomh Briocán (Saint Briocán) brought Christianity to the area. That is to say that there are people that have been in Rosmuc for one thousand five hundred years.

It is believed that the name ‘Ros Muc’ comes from the old Irish “the peninsula of rounded hills”, ros meaning “peninsula” and muc meaning “rounded hills” or “Pig”. Alternatively, the etymology could literally be ros muc-”the pig’s head peninsula” (communication by boat between the area and neighbouring islands in Ceantar na nOileán being common up until the early 20th century, and the appearance of the peninsula from the sea was said to resemble that of a pig’s head).

The area has many literary figures, notably Irish revolutionary and education/language activist Patrick Pearse who had a summer residence there in the early 1900s (now a National Monument/Heritage Site open to the public), and who set many of his short stories in the area. Another writer was Pádraic Ó Conaire, who wrote a number of short stories partly set in the region, including M’asal Beag Dubh (My Little Black Donkey) and the novella Deoraíocht (Exile). The area is recognised as one of the strongest remaining Gaeltacht areas in South Connemara.

Pádraig Pearse, who was involved in the 1916 revolution in Dublin had a cottage in Rosmuc where he wrote many of his pieces. It was in Rosmuc that he wrote his famous oration given at the grave of Ó Donnabháin Rosa (O’Donovan Rossa) in 1915, which included the immortal words ” … but, the fools, the fools, the fools! – They have left us our Fenian dead, and while Ireland holds these graves, Ireland unfree shall never be at peace.”

The area has a traditional Sean-nós Irish dancing festival the first weekend following St. Brigid’s Day (1 February), Rosmuc’s traditional first day of spring.
