Aughris

Aughris is a coastal townland in County Sligo, in the west of Ireland. It is also the name given to a prominent headland that includes the townlands of Aughris, Garryduff, Kilrusheighter and Rathglass. The area has been settled since at least medieval times and there are numerous archaeological remains in the vicinity.Aughris now has a small harbour used by inshore fishermen and a popular public house known as Maggie May's Beach Bar (run by the McDermott family). The geology of the area is limestone, with numerous fossilized coral fauna visible in exposed coastal areas.A tiny clachán-type village located close to the coast is now largely abandoned. Most existing houses cluster near the harbour and public house.
