Hill Walk

The route goes from Ballinabehy to Two Sisters giant rocks, Lackagh Mountain. The walk will start in the townland of Moneenlom, Glenfarne and will follow the Leitrim Way South for 6 km to the townland of Dergvone. Walkers will then leave the Leitrim Way and walk 3km due East to Lough Carran. You will then turn right and walk West for .75km to Lackagh Lough and the Two Sisters. The Two sisters are two giant rocks overlooking Lackagh Lough, each rock is about the side of a semi detached house. (This is difficult terrain and walkers will have the choice to avoid it and walk back to the start of the walk along the Leitrim Way). After reaching the Two Sisters, the walk will then go due East for 3.5km back to the Leitrim Way and walk six km North to the start.

Total Distance is: 16km approx. The Walk along the Leitrim Way is easy but the trek to Lackagh Lough is challenging over rough ground. Highest point is 440 meters. The ascent is gradual. Duration will be 5 to 6 hours approx, depending on the group, shorter if walkers stay on the Leitrim Way.

This walk is suitable for the fit and is under the watchful eye of the Holey Soles Hill walking club.

Please wear hill walking boots, waterproofs and bring a packed lunch and hot drink

Ramble

If you prefer something more pedestrian, opt for a 2 hour ramble in Glenfarne Demense. Enjoy stunning views of Lough MacNean and across to Fermanagh and Cavan

This walk on gravel paths is easy paced. Participants will see some of the pieces on the MacNean Sculpture trail and will visit the site of Glenfarne Hall of the former Tottenham Estate.

Please wear strong walking shoes/boots and waterproofs.

The walks are in aid of Warmi Huasi women’s & children’s project in Lima. This is operated by a friend, Fr. Ed O’Connell. Donations welcome on the day.
