The area is of great historical significance. Following the Synod of Whitby in 664 St. Coleman bishop of Lindesfarne (Holy Island) founded a monastery in Mayo Abbey for his Saxon followers. It became one of the most important monastic sites in Western Europe and its reputation for learning so increased that scholars flocked to it from all parts of Europe. The ruins of the monastic wall or vallum are still in evidence. In later times Mayo became the seat of the ancient Diocese of Mayo and the settlement gave its name to County Mayo in the 16th century.
