Welcome to the Homepage of Glenisland Newsflash

Glenisland Newsflash is a monthly newsletter for the village of Glenisland, Co. Mayo. It continues the village tradition of having a community publication. In the 1970ies and 80ies it used to be a Christmas magazine, often a bumper edition with stories, poems and articles about history and new developments in the area.

Since 2007 Glenisland Newsflash is published ten times a year with the exception of July and August. It is researched, put together, printed and distributed free of charge to every house in the village by a dedicated team of volunteers.

Islandeady Parish sponsors the Newsflash by facilitating the photocopying. To raise the necessary funds Glenisland Newsflash sells a calendar (sponsored by First Choice Credit Union) with photos of the village every year before Christmas and get donations from local businesses.

Thanks to modern technology many Glenisland people who do not live in the village anymore regularly receive the PDF version by email which has the additional bonus of being in colour – a luxury the paper edition cannot afford.
