Walking in the Footsteps and Seeing with their Eyes
Follow the route taken by Sean MacDiarmada from Corracloona NS to the MacDiarmada House.
Join in this wonderful walk. Hear the history of the school and see the sights that MacDiarmada and his siblings would have enjoyed on the route to and from school. The profusion of colours and wildlife in this magical spot in Spring & Summer is a feast for the senses. The purples and pinks of the Herb Robert, Rhododendron, Ragged Robin and Speedwell. Fields of Bog Cotton and White Thorn line your route.
Stunning views over Lough MacNean across to Fermanagh and, if the evening is clear, the Donegal Mountains, all the while Big, Middle and Little Thur mountains keep a watchful eye on walkers’ progress. Hear about Thur’s archaeological monuments which catch the sunrise at the spring and autumn equinoxes.
Meet at Kiltyclogher Heritage Centre for tour. Walk is approx 2.8 Km and slow paced. Please wear walking shoes. History and wildlife guides will accompany you.
Mac Diarmada cottage will be open for tours after some walks.
