HERITAGE SUNDAY ON THE TRAIL:
The Great Southern Trail group marked Heritage Sunday with a visit to Barnagh Tunnel . For some of those assembled it was their first experience of walking through the tunnel which was hewn out of the rock in the construction of the railway a century and a quarter ago. After the tunnel visit all proceeded along the trail towards Newcastle West and on to Ardagh where there was a stone crushing display with a vintage machine. The official launch of the newly published guide to the Great Southern Trail took place in Ardagh Hall. Over 35 Km of Greenway is now available for off-road recreation and the guide gives directions to the principal access points along the route between Rathkeale and Abbeyfeale.
