McGiollaphadraig Way Walk in Laois

McGiollaphadraig Way Walk in south Laois this Bank Holiday Monday.

Walkers should make their way to south Laois this weekend where they can enjoy a historic and scenic amble on the Laois Kilkenny border.

South Laois Tourism holds the popular McGiollaphadraig Way Walk on October Bank Holiday Monday. 

The walk re-traces the steps of Cormac McGiollaphadraig resident of Cullahill Castle as he fled Cromwell's men in the 1600's making his way onto Cullahill Mountain where he was captured and slain.

The walk will bring you through the spectacular views of Cullahill Mountain and the Ballagh Hill to the finish in Durrow where refreshments will be held in Dec's Bar Durrow.

Starting 12 noon Cullahill Castle with registration from 11.30am.
