Why are the Céide fields so important for Mayo?


Visitors to the Céide Fields centre can see how people lived in Mayo over 5000 years ago. Lots of visitors to the Céide fields means that lots more people will come to visit Mayo as well.

Why are the Céide fields so important for learning about history? No other country in Europe has a village or settlement as old as the village found at the Céide fields. It can help us to learn how people used to live long ago and about when they discovered new things like the wheel and stuff!  


In the Céide Visitors centre you can see lots of models of the people working long ago.
