THE PICTURESQUE walk from Delgany to Downs Hill was made by a keen group of strollers last weekend.

Delgany Community Council organised the event last Saturday morning as part of Heritage Week.

The group met at the Wicklow Arms in the morning then went on via St. Mary's Church and Lost Village of The Downs with an option for a shorter return walk including a visit to a ring fort.

Downs village is just south of the western side of the Glen of the Downs, and up from the Grove Pub.

St. Mary's, along the route, is the ruins of a small 15th century church, with other lovely sites to see along the way.
