Lúnasa Festival: Ambassador Guided Walk through the Gap of the North

A historical guided walk through the famous Gap of the North, journeying from Faughart to Jonesborough.

Enjoy an historical journey back through time on a guided walk with Venora Hovelt , an Ambassador for Ring of Gullion, and her husband Iain, visiting the ancient sacred sites of Kilnasaggart and Faughart graveyard.  During your walk you will learn about the historical importance of this area in the 1600s and its impact on present day history.  The walk will be assisted by other Ring of Gullion Ambassadors.

Refreshments will be available in the Gap of the North pub after the walk.

The walk begins at Faughart graveyard and will take you along roads with some grassland sections.  The walk is roughly 4 miles long and mostly downhill.  It will take around 2-2.5 hours, finishing in Jonesborough.  As this is a linear walk return transport will be provided for DRIVERS only.  When booking your tickets please put ‘(D)’ after the name of the driver.

Registration starts at 1.30pm.
