Guided Walk of Glenasmole Valley – National Heritage Week
August 21, 2019 @ 6:45 pm - 8:45 pm
The theme for this year’s National Heritage Week is ‘Pastimes, Past Times’ and will see over 2,000 events happen across the country from the 17th – 25th of August. To celebrate the event, Wicklow Uplands Council are organising a guided walk with well-known local Donie Anderson around parts of the Glenasmole Valley on the evening of Wednesday the 21st.
Shaped by glacier activity and the River Dodder, the picturesque setting serves as the backdrop for this free event. It is open to everyone and promises to be a fun and enjoyable experience with plenty of stories and anecdotes shared along the route. This area of the Dublin uplands, has a deep history going back to the mythologies of Fionn Mac Cumhaill and his band of Irish warriors, Na Fianna. Many of the old traditions and hill farming practices that were once a common sight in the valley, will be explored during the walk and it will also include a visit to the Bog Road to take in the full vista of Dublin Bay and its capital city.
Participants should meet beforehand at 6.45pm outside the Old Mill in Tallaght. Due to a bus service being organised to accommodate the group, advance booking is essential. Please RSVP by the 19th of August by sending an email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 01-2818406.
