Welcome to cloonacool.ie, a website for and about our vibrant, wild and beautiful parish.
Cloonacool is a parish and village in County Sligo, Ireland. It rests at the foot of the Ox Mountains (Sliabh Gamh). The Mad river runs close to the village before it links up with the River Moy also running close to the village. Cloonacool is the rural half of the parish of Tubbercurry. Indeed, tradition has it that Tubbercurry is the urban half of the parish of Cloonacool.
Cloonacool Sheep Festival will be a two-day activities event, created as a community project for the benefit of the local community. The event is designed to display the culture and traditions of the community to outsiders attending the event. The festival will take the form of day activities such as stock displays, novelty competitions, corporate exhibits, children’s activities and craft skills demonstrations – all connected with sheep farming, its tradition and related activities and industries.
