The Deserted Village of Glentornan & Errigal Mountain, Dunlewey, County Donegal, Ireland
This little mysterious ruined village of Glentornan consists of around 10 homes. Hidden away from virtually everyone & everything, between a scattered forest on the opposite shore of Dunlewey Lough in the shadow of the Mt Errigal.
Through local research I’ve learned that around 50 people lived in this small village between 1841 to 1911 when it was left almost totally abandoned. The reason people who once resided in this village had to leave, was a case of “moving with the times”. The younger family members either moved to the opposite side of the lake or emigrated seeking work etc which left the remaining elderly on their own. Sadly without their youth to care for them & maintain the village, they also had no option but to migrate to the opposite end of this lake. I believe a few folk may have returned here & remained until the 1960’s but nowadays Glentornan is only a “ghost in the shell” of its former glory ?
