Foxford is a picturesque village on the banks the renowned River Moy. Named Béal Easa, or "mouth of the waterfall", Foxford is situated in the heart of fishing country with the salmon-rich Moy providing superb salmon fishing opportunities and drawing anglers from far and wide with nearby Loughs Conn and Cullin, also offering impressive stores, especially of brown trout.
One of the town’s highlights is the Foxford Woollen Mills, one of the last working mills in
Ireland producing vibrantly coloured wool which is then transformed into magnificent works
of wearable art. Established in 1892, it was the brainchild of Agnes Morrogh-Bernard, a Sister of Charity, who was charged with the task of founding a convent in Foxford.
There is something profoundly literary about the life of a salmon. Born into the waters of a river, they head to the mouth of the river at a young age, fattening up and preparing for the changes in water salinity that they will experience as adults.
