Excerpt: Achill Island (; Irish: ) in County Mayo is the largest
island off the coast of Ireland, and is situated off the west
coast. It has a population of 2,700. Its area is 148 km (57 sq mi).
Achill is attached to the mainland by Michael Davitt Bridge,
between the villages of Gob an Choire (Achill Sound) and Poll
Raithni (Polranny). A bridge was first completed here in 1887, and
replaced by the current structure in 1949. Other centres of
population include the villages of Keel, Dooagh, Dumha Eige
(Dooega) and Dugort. The parish's main Gaelic football pitch and
two secondary schools are on the mainland at Poll Raithni. Early
human settlements are believed to have been established on Achill
around 3000 BCE. A paddle dating from this period was found at the
crannog near Dookinella. The island is 87% peat bog. The parish of
Achill also includes the Curraun peninsula. The people of Curraun
