'Walk of the Boreens’ is an opportunity to discover some of Galway City’s best kept secrets in a delightful leisurely ramble along a network of river walks and country lanes (‘boreens’) embracing Terryland, Coolough, Ballinfoile and Menlo through a rich diverse rural landscape of wetlands, rivers, woods, hedgerows, farmland, castles, ancient villages and karst limestone hills. These ancient trails, primarily characterised by biodiversity-rich hedgerows that once served as the transport arteries for a farming population, could become a vibrant health and ecological resource for present/future generations and form part of a green infrastructure for the development of Galway as a National Park City.
Rendezvous: ‘The Plots’ (old sportsfield), Dyke Road (Woodquay end).
1pm, Sunday November 17th
Participants should wear suitable weather attire/footwear. Children to be accompanied by parents or guardians.
