Súiloid an t-Sean Iarnród. Join us on a historic trail along the old railway line. Hear stories about the railway line, why it was built, who built it, and the impact it had on people in the area.
This is a looped walk from Dunlewey Community Centre to Trosc Gatehouse and back via Meenacreevagh. Approx 6km on a mix of old track and tar road. You will get to see some of the beautifully built bridges and culverts along the railway line and the views towards Errigal are spectacular. You will hear stories about the building of the railway line and how it impacted upon the people of the area. Our guides are local and speak Gaelic and will conduct some of the talk in Gaelic.
