The Gathabawn Loop Walk will be launched on Sunday at 11.45am, followed by refreshments and entertainment in Mackey’s Bar, Gathabawn.
The walk has been developed with the help of Kilkenny Leader Partnership and Fáilte Ireland, combined with the hard work of rural social scheme workers and community members. The walk is approximately seven miles long and moderate in terms of difficulty. Generally suited for children over 12, it commences outside Mackey’s Bar and follows the road out past the Church and Millennium Park. It takes a loop of Cullahill Mountain, Gurteen-na-hilla, Binn-na-Ne, with views of the Midlands, Slieve Blooms, the Devils Bit and Mount Leinster.
