Event description
Join us as we follow the 2000-year-old story of Oldcroghan Man across ancient Volcano, country road and bogland.

About this Event

On the walking tour you will explore the fascinating story of the find and preservation of this uniquely-preserved iron age King. The history of the area and of the iron age society in which he lived and died will be explained. On the 6-mile hike on volcanic hillside, country road and bog, you will visit the inauguration site of chieftains and kings of Offaly going back to antiquity and visit the bog where the body of Oldcroghan man was found where it had been sacrificed to a long-forgotten goddess. Along the way you will stand over the site of a passage tomb and see the site of archaeological finds from the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age.
