Well done to Emo man Cormac Moore on the recent launch of his book ‘The GAA vs Douglas Hyde’. The book was launched in Croke Park last week and is available now from all good bookshops.


As part of National Trails Day next Sunday, October 7, there are two free events taking place in Emo. The first is a family friendly 4.3km hike around Emo Court Demesne, meeting at 10.30am at the lodge at village entrance gate to Emo Court. The walk will last about 1.5 hours, and is suitable for buggies and families with older children.

An Autumn Forage Walk is also on offer. Families can explore and discover how Autumn changes the flora and fauna of the woodlands. Under the guidance of a knowledgable guide, they will gather samples in forage bags and play nature detective with magnifying glasses. Meet at Emo Court car park at 10.45am near the tea rooms for this family friendly event.

Both events are free of charge and led by experienced guides. See www.nationaltrailsday.ie for information on other events taking place.
