Famine Wall Walk

Our next walk takes place on Sunday, 16th of April on the slopes of Slieve Gullion, when we’ll follow a wall with a poignant story to tell…

✅ Built as a public works scheme during “An Gorta Mór”

✅ It runs along “townland” boundaries

✅ And gave employment to the local starving population.

Why not join us this Sunday??? Rest your hands on its stones and feel the presence of those who built it.

You will need:

🥾 deep thread walking boots

🧥 a wind/waterproof jacket

🥪 a packed lunch and warm drink

⌚ Expect to be out for 3.5/4 hours on open hillside.

Meet at “The Gap o the North ” pub Jonesborough @10 am for registration and safety briefing.

New walkers always welcome.
