The Croagh Patrick Heritage Trail is hosting a community walk and talk to the Boheh Stone on Wednesday next, August 24. Immerse yourself in Mayo’s pre-historic culture, and view the Boheh Stone, a unique Neolithic feature. This is a guided walk, in conjunction with Mayo Heritage Week. Join local archaeologists to hear about this site and (weather permitting ) experience the amazing Rolling Sun phenomenon for yourself, where the sun appears to roll down the side of Croagh Patrick at dusk. There are more details online at www.croaghpatrickheitagetrail.com
This is a moderate walk of 2km and is open to everyone, meeting and registration at Brackloon Community Centre at 7.30pm situated 7km out the Westport/Leenane road. Brackloon is on the N59 Leenane road, south of Westport. Pass through Knappagh and just past the Liscarney crossroads, the community centre is on the left. Refreshments will be served at the community centre, with a brief talk before setting off the Boheh Stone. A cover charge of €5 will be applied.
