The Connemara Jack Russell Terrier line originates from the region in Ireland considered the "midlands"  and not from the harsh landscape of the Connemara region in County Galway.  They were named after the Connemara Pony with whom they share many of the same characteristics.  Like their namesakes, Connemara Jack Russell Terriers have stable and proven temperaments, are lively but eager, trainable, hardy, agile, intelligent, athletic, versatile and have good dispositions. Clearly longer than they are tall, the Connemara “stands on short legs and covers a lot of ground".  They are the image of strength, loyalty, kindness and trust.  After visiting Ireland and taking a trip around the Connemara Loop, it is easy to equate the Connemara Terrier with the rugged terrain of that region.  These little terriers can adapt to any area and are just as comfortable living in an apartment in the city of Boston as there are in an urban or rural setting, on a farm or in the desert of the west.  Where they are happiest, is right by your side as your constant companion and shadow.
Kylemore – Coill Moir (meaning Great Wood)

Located between Letterfrack and Leenane in County Galway, Ireland lies Kylemore Abbey, a 19th century residence formerly known as Kylemore Castle.  It was built by Mitchell Henry, a wealthy merchant and member of Parliament from Liverpool, for his wife Margaret.  After honeymooning in the area in 1849, Mitchell Henry promised his wife that they would build their dream home there.  By the time the Castle was completed in 1871, the Henry’s had had nine children.  Tragically, Margaret died in 1875 after becoming ill while in Egypt on a family vacation.  Heartbroken, Mitchell did not spend much time at Kylemore after Margaret’s death.  He put his beloved Castle on the market and in 1903; it was purchased by the Duke and Duchess of Manchester.  Both Mitchell and his wife Margaret are buried on the grounds of Kylemore in a small mausoleum.  In 1920, the castle was bought by the Benedictine Nuns and converted to a convent and girls school. 
While visiting the Connemara region, I fell in love with the beauty and history of Kylemore.  In my opinion, there could not be a more fitting name to represent our special little terriers.
