Mayo: The ‘emigrants’ just down the road in Galway

mayo association galway

The Muintir Mhaigh Eo Gallimh (Mayo Association Galway) organisation was founded in 1971.

It is a progressive professional association which holds many events throughout the year which include:

  • an annual dinner dance
  • a business networking dinner
  • golf outings
  • various other social events.

The group’s activities include

  • Mayo International Conventions, of which many have been held over the years. 
  • The Mayo Enterprise Fund, whose aim is to provide seed capital to budding entrepreneurs to set up in business for themselves. Members make valuable contributions of expertise and time to help others to set up viable enterprises who might not have been in a position to do so without the support of the Fund.
  • A business lunch in Galway to promote networking and identify possible opportunities for job creation. After a successful debut in 2012 this has become an annual event.
  • Members’ talents, such as administration, public speaking, fund-raising, writing and publications have been developed as they serve the organisation.

Meetings and Contacts

Under the chairmanship of PJ King, The Mayo Association Galway holds its meetings on the first Thursday of each month (except July and August) in the Galway Bay Hotel, Salthill, starting at 8.30pm.

Newcomers are always welcome and the association has been invigorated by an influx of energetic, vibrant, young people – all experts in social media – who contribute a youthful, progressive outlook.
