Partry (Irish: Partraí) is a village[2] and a civil parish formerly called Ballyovey[3] in County Mayo, Ireland. It is located at the junction of the N84 and R330 roads between the towns of Ballinrobe and Castlebar, and between Lough Carra and Lough Mask. The lakes Cloon Lough and Lough Nacorralea are located near Partry.

While formerly known as Ballyovey, the contemporary name, Partry, derives from the word "Partraige", which is the name of the tribe that lived in the area in ancient times.[citation needed]

In 2004, Partry Athletic Football Club was formed by members of the local community. It won Division 2 of the Mayo league the season after its formation.[citation needed]

A priest-hunter named Seán na Sagart was killed in Partry.[citation needed]
