Ballysadare is a village about 7 kilometres (4 miles) from Sligo town Centre. Built on the Ballysadare river, the area experienced rapid growth during the 'Celtic Tiger' boom, with many new housing developments, many of which now lie empty, creating phantom estates. The village was once choked with heavy traffic before the N4 Sligo-Collooney dual-carriageway was completed in January 1998. The N59 Ballina-Sligo road still winds through the village. It is home to St. Mary's College, which serves the southern and western environs of County Sligo, including the surrounding areas of Collooney and Coolaney. Ballysadare railway station is located on the Dublin-Sligo railway line and the Western Rail Corridor but is currently closed to passengers.
