Ballymacward Community Centre location

Our Irish Women exhibition is currently travelling to various locations throughout Galway and Mayo thanks to the National Museum of Ireland, Museum of Country Life, Castlebar. The exhibition showcases the vital contribution of women in our communities. After a very successful launch at the museum, the exhibition will now travel to all the groups who contributed, and will be showcased throughout the year.
