Carnmore Airport near Oranmore County Galway

   
Carnmore is located at the southern end of the parish of Claregalway. Due to its proximity to Galway city and yet retaining its' rural charm, the Carnmore area has become a very attractive place to live. The number of dwelling houses being built has multiplied in recent years and the price of building land around the area has risen astronomically.  There are a number of local businesses in the Carnmore area which provide good local employment.

There are the remains of five castles in the parish, most of them in ruin - Claregalway, Cloghmoyle, Lydican, Lissarulla and Kiltrogue

In sport, Carnmore has a noted hurling club. Carnmore Hurling Club was not founded until 1944, even though there has been hurling played in the parish since the foundation of the GAA (and much earlier). However records show that a team under the parish name of Baile an ChlŠir played hurling in 1886 and reached their first county final in 1895. However the parish never won a County Senior Hurling Championship although it has taken part almost non-stop in that competition ever since. When the Second World War broke out and bicycles became scarce (and almost non-existent as the war progressed) and with the only playing field in the parish being at Claregalway, the two ends of the parish became very far apart due to lack of any transport. Consequently, Carnmore Hurling Club was born in 1944.
