Guided Walk for Heritage Week
August 19, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
An 8km Guided Walk along parts of the Mid Clare Way taking in historical sites and monuments with fantastic views over the Estuary.
This 8km Guided Walk will leave Newmarket-on-Fergus (Car park across from the Weavers Inn) and head towards Mooghaun Hillfort, which dates from the late Bronze Age and will also take the walker past the Dromoland Estate. The walk follow quiet roads with some gentle inclines. Returning to Newmarket-on-Fergus, we will continue to Kilnasoolagh Church of Ireland chuch. This was built in 1815 by a prominent ecclesial builder James Pain, and was a reconstruction of a previous church built in 1686 by Sir Donough O’Brien of Dromoland Castle.
This guided walk is free of charge with an optional donation.
All monies raised will go towards the future maintenance and upkeep of the East Clare Way & the Mid Clare Way walking routes.
