Overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and Achill Island, is the picturesque village of Doohoma. The sandy banks beside Doohoma Head comprise of a beautiful nine-hole golf links course and a GAA football pitch.
Doohoma, like much of Erris, has a long history of emigration. Large numbers of people travelled every year to the potato-picking fields of Scotland. ‘Tattie-hokers’ was the name given by the local Scottish people to the workers from the west of Ireland. So numerous were the ‘tattie-hokers’ leaving Doohoma, that ships would moor off Doohoma Head(Ceann Ramhar) to transport them to their new lives.
