Westport, County Mayo was designed by James Wyatt in 1780, in the Georgian architectural style. Its layout follows the medieval principles of urban design introduced by the Normans in the 13th century. The design for the town was commissioned by Lord Sligo of the nearby stately homem Westport Housem as a place for his workers and tenants to live. A particular feature is the incorporation of the river into the townsÂ’ composition, on each side of the river are attractive promenades (The Mall) with several stone bridges over the river Carrow Beg. In the distance is the imposing Croagh Patrick which towers over the town. If IÂ’m honest though itÂ??s not my totally favourite view of Croagh Patrick! My favourite view allows you only to see the very top of it, and itÂ’s from my friend Corry OÂ’ReillyÂ’s house just outside Westport, itÂ’s best viewed with a glass of wine and some cheese from the garden on a late Autumn evening! This was one of the scenes I captured as a result of my epic 1400 mile tour weaving around Ireland in February 2013.
