The Smyth Forge

The Forge belonged to Blacksmith Michael Smyth’s. It dates back to the early 1800’s. At least 5 generations of his family have worked at the forge. Michael worked in the forge till 1997. In 2007, it was restored by the Claregalway Historical and Cultural Society. The Museum next door was opened in 2014. The Museum is a step back in time, with carpentry tools, farm equipment, pictures, documents and artifacts from the people of the parish.
