As part of National Heritage Week 2021 we are offering 2 free guided tours of our heritage walking trail. The sites and monuments along the trail show evidence of continuous human settlement in the area for almost 6,000 years. From our rare triple bullaun stone to our magnificent stone fort Kilcashel, there is a wealth of history, heritage and folklore to enjoy along the trail. The tours are being held on Tuesday 17th & Thursday 19th August. Places will be limited so we advise the public to book in advance to reserve a place.

We are delighted to be able to offer our third Dry stone wall course, led by Kilmovee native Dominic Keogh of Vernacular Conservation Ltd.
Over 2 days, Saturday 4th & Sunday 5th September 2021, Dominic will be joined by instructor Eoin Madigan to give hands on training in dry stone building. They will demonstrate how our rich local heritage of drystone walling has created unique and very bio diverse habitats within our vernacular landscape. Places are limited so please contact us to book attendance.
