Kilkieran

Kilkieran is a village in the Connemara area of Co Galway. It is situated along the R340 road from Galway City, which is 66km east and can be accessed by the 424 bus. Kilkieran is in the Gaeltacht area and is linked to the nearby town of Carna by the Irish college of Coláiste Sheoisaimh, which runs courses during the summer and mid-term breaks. The village - also known as Cill Chiaráin - is Irish for "Ciarán's church" and is named after Saint Ciarán, who spent many years living in the village. There is a National School, a Church and a Holy Well named after him, as well as a cross overlooking the village that was erected in his honour. The area is popular with tourists and hosts the Connemara Triathlon each year. Local amenities include a health centre, a pub and bistro, the Arramara Teo seafood factory, a pier, a supermarket, a community hall and fish factory. There is also a playground and astroturf pitch in the village. Local sports clubs include the Carna-Cashel football team and an athletics club.
