Last weekend we, the Good Energies EVS volunteers, decided to visit Sligo. Two weeks ago we went to Strandhill but we hadn’t the opportunity to make a tour of the city and now that we have, we can say that we really enjoyed it!

Sligo is one of those cities where you can feel a special charm. People are lovely, always ready to help. We started our tour in The Model Arts Centre. There we got a kick out of an exhibition called “Fanned apart” which gave us a glimpse into women’s lives in the twentieth century. After that, the staff suggested a few interesting places to us in the city and they gave us a map.


We visited Calry Church, the Old Abbey and we walked through the streets, which, after living in Leitrim for a month, seemed to us to be full of people!


We enjoyed beautiful views of The Garavogue River sitting having a cup of coffee on the riverside and of course we ended up in Pennys to do some local shopping!

We had a great day and we will definitely come back soon.
