Tamasin Wilson of Newry and Mourne Council said, “We are delighted to provide people with a chance to explore the Ring of Gullion and enjoy the breathtaking landscape whilst learning about the history too. The tour was very well supported and it was the first of a number events we will be running throughout the year to showcase the area.”
