Ireland is steeped in history, from mythological, to folklore to real life history, there is a historical site around every single corner and acre of this great land. I know this, because I have spent the past two years writing this book. The Derryglad Folk and Heritage Museum here in Co. Westmeath is the life's work of Mr Charlie Finneran and is a family run business. Located behind Charlie's family home, this immaculate museum is a treasure trove of Irish History spanning back decades. Featuring an old-style thatched bar & grocery, and thousands of other memorabilia, I loved walking around Derryglad, but unfortunately I didn't have time to see it all, but will most definitely return in the future. Don't think that you can see everything here in just an hour, that's impossible, but with the help and knowledge of Charlie, he can easily guide you to what you are interested in.
