Creggs   ~   Williamstown
 
 
Creggs is a small village in North / East Galway, on the R362 regional road between Glenamaddy and Athleague.
Although it has a population of only a hundred the village contains three Public Houses.

The village of Creggs was once a popular centre, with a monthly Fair, dancing, football and Feiseanna (music competitions).

Dunamon Castle Creggs County Galway
   
Dunamon Castle (above) was originally built in the 12th century by the O'Finnaghy clan. It changed hands many times, and is thought to be the oldest continuously inhabited building in Ireland.

A memorial in the village reminds the visitor that Charles Stewart Parnell, a famous 19th century Irish political figure, made his last speech here only two weeks before his death. The memorial was erected by Éamon de Valera in 1946, the centenary of his birth.

Creggs is a wonderful community, and both the village and it's surrounding area boast a small but thriving business network, attracting visitors from far and wide. The outstanding range of recreational possibilities also contribute to it's popularity with tourists.
