Thanks for posting this video. My older brother, Dr. Paul Nolan pioneered the annual bell-ringing celebration of the fourteen Titanic passengers from this village and was founding member of the Addergoole Titanic Society. He is the GP (doctor) in Lahardane. The Titanic Park in Lahardane is well worth a visit if you are touring in Mayo. Also there are two stunningly beautiful stained glass windows in the church in the village commemorating the villagers who were on titanic. Lastly, but not least, this little village boasts one of the truly best pubs in Ireland, Leonards Bar. Lahardane is tiny, but punches way above its weight. Well worth a visit.
