Keash, Co. Sligo

Keash, Co. Sligo, situated 4 miles from Ballymote Town in Co. Sligo. The alley is attached to the north facing wall of the local parish hall, which is known as "The White Hall", beside the local Church. As you can see from the plaque the hall was built in 1913. Again the alley is in a great location nestled at the foot of the "Hill of Keash" which is well known for its marvellous limestone caves which are clearly visible on the west side of the Hill.
