As birthplace of Venerable Patrick Peyton Attymass in Co Mayo was selected as the Irish location for the memorial centre to commemorate his life and apostolic works.
Father Peyton Memorial Centre was officially opened and dedicated on 10th October 1998 by Bishop Thomas Flynn.
A place of respite prayer and peace the centre is a popular tourist attraction with guided tours of rare personnel memorabilia and photographs and a DVD presentation of his life.
The communal facility that the Centre provides for the locality is very much in demand as we strive to make the centre as socially inclusive as possible. Each Tuesday senior citizens from the surrounding area travel to the centre for Mass, lunch and social activities using the Rural Transport Scheme and the Local Link Bus Services. https://www.locallink.ie/en/your-local-link/mayo/
