The Poet's Trail to Urney
Walk through tranquil, lush countryside to the ancient Urney graveyard, showcasing the life of Peadar O'Doirnin.

Listen to Poetry or Sean Nos singing at his graveside. En route, criss-crossing the border as you walk, forage along the hedgerow and riverside. Hear stories of legendary mighty warriors and life in the area from the 18th Century to the present. An immersive and unforgettable experience.
