Ardagh, County Mayo
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The parish takes its name from an ancient ecclesiastical site, which was either a Church or a small monastery, and is derived from "Ard Achadh", which means high ground. The earliest record of the first church in Ardagh is in a 1198 epistle issued by Pope Innocent 3rd.
