Connaught - Eagle & Sword
Sligo is located in the Western province of Connaught. There are three other provinces - Ulster in the north, Leinster in the East and Munster in the south. The symbol of Connaught is a sword and an eagle. This is quite apt as one of Sligo's best-loved attractions and a popular activity on our summer programme is Eagle-flying - a really brilliant attraction that brings the majesty of birds of prey and raptors to the general public.
