Foxford – ‘the Capital of the Moy’ – is a village in County Mayo, Ireland which is Nestled between the Ox mountains and the Nephin mountain range. This world-renowned fisherman’s Mecca on the Moy has lots to offer in terms of spectacular scenery, walking trails & historical heritage.
Ireland has a number of great river systems and of these, the Moy which straddles counties Mayo and Sligo and is one of the most productive fishing rivers in all of Europe. The river includes great loughs such as Conn and Cullin but also many small lakes and streams. For much of its course, the Moy flows through pastureland but the mountains of the watersheds which feed it are almost always in view from its banks. Nephin mountain range lines the western horizon and the Ox mountains mark the eastern watershed.
