Description: 

A walk on the hilly roads above Lough Talt. Lovely views of Lough Talt and the Gap. Care needed on the Ballina road.


The Route
Take the R294 or Ballina road from Tubbercurry. Park at Joe Dans pub. Continue on the main road for a few metres before turning right up a narrow road. This ascends through a forest before levelling out somewhat. Continue past the last house as the road turns into a rough track. Continue on passing the French Mans grave and follow the track veering to the left and downhill. Pass through the timber gate to reach the main road. Turn left onto the main road and continue back to your starting point at Joe Dans.


Did You Know?
A Plaque located at the site of the French Mans grave in Gorterslin marks the resting place of many of General Humbert’s French Soldiers who landed at Killala, Co. Mayo and died on the mountain as they made their way to join up in Tubbercurry with Irish Rebels and fought alongside them in their cause for freedom.
