Event description

Description

Dating from the 13th century, the ancient burial ground of Slanes with its church ruins on a prominent hill-top site is a familiar landmark in the landscape south of Cloughey Village. It has been the site of burials from pre-Christian times as the nearby souterrain indicates.

On this walk, you will hear the intriguing life stories of some of those whose last resting places are at your feet. Looking upward and outward, you take in a panoramic view of the countryside laid out before you.
