|Cosán na Naomh
April / Aibreán 4
National Pilgrim Paths DayNational Pilgrim Paths Day is a new Easter Festival based on Ireland’s dense network of medieval pilgrim walking routes. This new heritage themed event is organised by the local communities adjacent to each of our principal penitential routes and is aimed at raising awareness of Ireland’s rich inheritance of pilgrim paths.
The pilgrim path to be walked is Cosán na Naomh and the walk begins in the car park near Ventry Beach at 10.30.
The full walk (to the foot of Mount Brandon) is 18km long, but you can choose to leave at a number of places where the path crosses roads. We will have guides, and an archaeologist will explain a little about the various monastic sites we will meet along the way. Please wear appropriate footwear and clothing, and bring something to eat and drink. There is no charge for this event, and all are welcome. Children should be accompanied by an adult.
