Ardara

one of the main roads leading in to Ardara.  Ardara, pronounced "Ardra", is about 120 km southwest of Moville. 


Located at the bottom of the hill is the John Doherty statue.  He was born in Ardara in 1900.

  4. The town reminds me of Moville...winding, hilly streets. I am going to confess my utter ignorance. Who is John Doherty? Fiddler on the Roof I've heard of, but not fiddler on the road. Mea culpa!

  6. Only in Ireland would a traditional fiddler be commemorated with a statue. Plenty of videos of him on YouTube for those who are interested.
