Famine Walk Killary Harbour - Sat 23rd July 2011


Posted by Brian Hoban on July 18, 2011 at 10:49:13:


This walk at Killary harbour, Ireland's only fjord, follows the Green Road. It was once the primary route from the Rinvyle Peninsula to Leenane, and is now largely a sheep track. The path passes a ghost town (an abandoned pre-famine village) on the southern shore side of the harbour, where the fields rise at a devilishly steep slope from the ruined cottages clustered at the water's edge.

IN ORDER TO AVOID CONGESTION ALL PARTICIPANTS ARE REQUESTED TO MEET AT KYLEMORE PASS HOTEL, WHERE THERE IS AMPLE CAR PARKING. WALKERS WILL BE BROUGHT BY BUS TO STARTING POINT AND BROUGHT BACK HERE FOLLOWING EVENT.

Registration on Saturday 23rd July 2011at the Kylemore Pass Hotel from 11.15 to 11.45 a.m.
