2019 was another record year for The North Mayo Heritage Centre at Enniscoe House Crossmolina, with a record breaking number of visitors to the facility.
24,000 visitors were recorded during the year which represents an 18% increase on the previous year. In 2016 there were only 7,500 recorded visitors to The North Mayo Heritage Centre.
Visitors have been recorded from all over the world as they undertake research into their families genealogy. The centre currently holds 1.2 million records for people from North Mayo.
Hugh Trayer, Manager of the North Mayo Heritage Center told Midwest News today that 2019 saw a steady increase in visitors from the UK who were keen to establish their Irish connections as they’ve decided to make an application for an EU passport.
Visitors also explored the looped walks around the Enniscoe Estate and The Secret Garden Cafe. However, it was the family events such as the Crossmolina Christmas Market and the BioDiversity Blitz which proved most popular with visitors.
