Omey Island is attached to the mainland by a large beach which is exposed as the tide goes out and it is here that the annual pony races are held. A stroll across the island will reveal the ruins of Teampal Faichin, 7th Century Saint Fechins Church which is the most obvious of the many ancient sites on the Island which has been inhabited since pre-christian times, and has been the subject of many archaeological digs.This place has always had appeal for writers and artists, notably the poet Richard Murphy who lived in the area for some years and for whom local lore and landscape/seascape inspired his work. Novelist John McGahern also resided here taking inspiration from the wonderful surroundings. The last full time resident of Omey was a man called Pascal Whelan who was a stunt man, actor and long time friend of Peter O’Toole.Omey Strand Claddaghduff Connemara
