County Mayo in the West of Ireland


mayo-ireland-sports

Mayo people, like all Irish, love playing sports or following different Irish sports teams and this means Mayo can offer visitors and holidaymakers a good variety of sports. An exciting holiday and a good opportunity to get in touch with the Irishness involves not only practising outdoor activities in the wild nature but also, as spectators, attending Irish sporting activities. This "love of all sports" has its roots in the ancient celtic culture; the Celts were active warriors, so even during peace times they engaged in warlike sports and many of these sports have survived to the present days.
