Stop 2 (A) Ancient Walls

County Mayo Ireland

Created By:


Our walk departs from the forest road and passes by the information point, over the small wooden bridge and gurgling stream. Here begins our boardwalk of wooden sleepers with a rubber mat surface. As the walk turns we come to stop 2 (A) which has the remains of a pre-bog wall running under the boardwalk. This wall is made up of a rough line of large rocks which has been revealed by the forestry machines travelling over the bog surface. These walls were constructed by the stone-age farmers as they cleared the fields of loose rocks and created pasture for livestock..
