Mealagh Valley Community Centre

The Mealagh Valley Community is a thriving community made up of people of diverse interests and backgrounds. The Community Centre is a place for members of the community and visitors to meet, mingle and have fun in a range of activities.

 The Centre has close connections with the  school in the valley and we also hope to offer opportunities for education, training and business activities that will help the community to sustain itself for the future generations.

The valley’s integral beauty and historic interest:

 

Local tradition suggests that Ireland’s first settlers landed at Du’n na mBarc where the Mealagh river flows into Bantry Bay. According to “The Annals of the Four Masters”, it was Noah’s granddaughter Ceasair who, with fifty girls and three men, Bith, Ladhra and Fintan, landed here in the year of the great deluge. The Mealagh Valley’s northern road travels east from Dunamark as far as the Barrabui at its eastern end. From Gowlanes bridge the valley’s southern road travels west back towards Bantry town.
