Moville

Moville (Bun an Phobail in Irish) is a town in County Donegal in the north of Ireland. Located on the western shore of Lough Foyle and about 17 miles from Derry, which lies across the border in Northern Ireland. Although it has a fishing pier, it is old and Greencastle commercial fishing pier is only a few miles away.

In the second half of the 19th century, Moville was a significant point of embarkation for many travellers, especially emigrants, to Canada and the United States of America. Steamships of the Anchor Line Glasgow and others en-route from Glasgow to New York City regularly called at Moville to pick up additional passengers.

An annual regatta is held every year in August, and has done so since early in the 19th century. In older times the one-man punt was popular, whereas nowadays the race of the home-made rafts brings competitors from many counties and large spectator crowds.

Moville has, in the last few years, had a secondary school built. Moville Community College has attracted many students from all across the Inishowen peninsula.
