History[ edit ] The origin of the name Belmullet is not clear. It has also been suggested that the latter half of the name may refer to the fish or the star shape used in heraldry.
To drain the area and form a passageway from Blacksod Bay into Broadhaven Bay, Shaen had a canal excavated, known thereafter as Shaen's Cut, large enough for small boats to pass through from one bay to the other.
However, little development of the town occurred, and by the canal was choked up and impassable.
Belmullet was the scene of Monster meetings of the Land League at the end of the 19th century. In the early 19th century Belmullet consisted of little more than a few thatched buildings. Ina coastguard station was built. William Henry Carter had inherited huge tracts of Shaen's land in Erris when he married Shaen's daughter and began to put plans in place to develop the town.
A new road was built which connected Belmullet with Castlebarwhich was completed in InCarter built a pier large enough to accommodate vessels of tons. British manufacturers and tea and sugar were sold; the produce of the fisheries were admitted to a market.
There was a daily postal service between Ballina and Belmullet. In the s, a visitor described it as "the youngest town in Ireland and like all young things it is comparatively fresh and fair. The town itself contains a few thatched cabins but consists of small streets of moderately sized slated houses branching from a little square, or market place ; the shops looked to be well furnished with not only necessaries but articles conducive to comfort and convenience.
Buildings are going on and speculation is progressing'. He also commented that the approach to the town was 'spoiled by deformed, wretched bog huts. The export of meal from the area to England started.
The local Protestant Church was built in Inwork began to re-open the canal which had been constructed by Arthur Shaen. Because of the Irish Faminethe canal was not completed until During the Relief work for the Distress in the middle of the Great Famine in andthe footpaths were formed and flagged.
The Head of the Treasury, Charles Trevelyannotoriously decreed that relief was only to be given to workhouse people. Starving people crowded to the workhouse. At one stage at the height of the Famine, 3, people were recorded as being in Belmullet workhouse. The area around Belmullet was severely impacted by the Great Irish Famine in the 19th century and in the next years many people emigrated from the area to the United States and to England.
Throughout the second half of the 19th century, many proposals were made regarding the development of a railway line in to Belmullet and Erris region.
Three routes were surveyed and discussed: Newport - Mulrany - Belmullet Route Three: Ballina - Crossmolina - Belmullet People along these routes lobbied for the railway lines to pass through their district. However the merchants of Belmullet were more skeptical and feared that the introduction of a railway line would adversely affect their trading position, putting Ballina within easy reach of the population.
Plans for a railway to Blacksod, which would have served trans-Atlantic shipping, were therefore postponed. Many still pressed the authorities for a rail line, and this movement gained momentum during the latter days of the First World Warwhen it was proposed that a line would improve lines of communication between both London and Canadaand between London and the United States.Critics tend to agree that Synge based most of his plays—Riders to the Sea, The Playboy of the Western World, The Shadow of the Glen, The Well of the Saints, The Tinker’s Wedding—on fieldwork that he performed during several journeys in the late s to the Aran Islands and County Wicklow.
