Like Lilliput in Gulliver's Travels, Ballybeg is a mythical village. In this case, a mythical Irish village! It comes from the Gaelic words 'Baile Beag' meaning little town. However, Ballybeg Village is very real in the sense that it could be any Irish village. It could be the village from where your ancestors emigrated. It could be where you live. It is the small town that you dream of when you think of Ireland. In Ireland, the occupiers of the small towns and people from the country  lived side by side in a symbiotic relationship. There was no real boundary between the town and the countryside. Townspeople relied on the country dwellers as the providers of food, fuel, custom for the shops, post office, pubs, blacksmiths, mills, etc., and it was to the towns that the country people went to for all those services and where they flocked to church on Sunday mornings. Both country-people and town-people were aware that the countryside held many treasures that had been inherited from their common ancestors, and while they might not always understand those treasures, they always respected them. If you have Irish Roots use the menu below to find a Guide to Irish Genealogy.
