WHAT IS TÍR SÁILE
Tír Sáile - The North Mayo Sculpture Trail is the largest public arts trial ever undertaken in Ireland. The trail originated in 1993, the year of the Mayo 5000, which was a year-long cultural celebration inspired by the surviving human imprint in earth and stone on the Mayo landscape over fifty centuries.
The original trail entailed the installation of fourteen site specific sculptures along the North Mayo Coast, supplemented by an exhibition site at which the work of artists or temporary exhibitions were accommodated. A number of the original works have since been decommissioned (see History for further details), and currently the trail consists of 11 works. (see sites marked with the Tír Sáile logo on the map.)
The North Mayo Sculpture Trail begins in Killala and follows the coastal route through Ballycastle, Belderrig, Belmullet and down to Blacksod.
