Trail Description

Starting in Glasson village heading south, the walk is mainly on tarred roads but for the most part, avoids heavily trafficked main roads. The section along the N55 at Tubberclair has a footpath. A couple of interesting landmarks: the Pinnacle (a tower that marks one of the geographical centres of Ireland - there's more than one.....) and the church where Oliver Goldsmith's father was the rector. The Three Jolly Pigeons pub is well placed at the half way mark - but cannot be relied upon to be open for business during the daytime.
