Forkhill Walk


A great walk today from Forkhill village up and over Shean/Forkhill Mountain, down into the secluded dell at Carrive to the Mass Rock where Seamus told us about Dr Patrick Donnelly, the Bard of Armagh (actually a Tyrone man), how he lived close to the junction of the Maphoner and Crossmaglen roads, giving the townland of “Doctor’s Quarters” its name.

A pity the visibility wasn’t better especially for those walkers out with us for the first time, we hope you enjoyed your walk and we look forward to seeing you again on our next walk in a fortnight’s time.
