Councillor Gillian Fitzpatrick, Vice-Chairperson of the new super council Newry, Mourne and Down stepped up to launch a range of walking guides for the Ring of Gullion area. gullion12The 3 walking guides will be available for free from the local Visitor Information Points in Slieve Gullion and Crossmaglen and the Visitor Information Centre in Newry. The Ring of Gullion offers walking routes to suit every ability from the novice/pleasure walker to the most experienced of hikers. Walks range from 1 mile woodland trails to the 36mile Ring of Gullion Waymarked Way. These walking guides take walkers on a journey of discovery of this area of outstanding natural beauty and allow them to roam in the area, where Cúchulainn and the Red Branch Knights, the O’Neills and O’Hanlons roamed, battled and died. Therese Hamill, Ring of Gullion AONB Officer said, “These guides are a great way to discover an area which reflects a mix of cultures from Neolithic to the present, while the rolling countryside lends itself to the enjoyment of peaceful walks and a friendly welcome at every stop”.
