Guided Archaeological Walk of Blanemore Forest with Professor Seamas Caulfield

When: Saturday, 26 August, 2017

“Six thousand years of history lie in this conifer woodland, set on a gravel ridge above the wild and ancient bog-lands of North Mayo. Explore the sacred tombs and field walls of our first farmers. Walk among the mysterious standing stones of the bronze age and sit with the brooding dark beauty of Lough Naweela. This is a unique walk through Blanemore Forest.”

This event has fallen during Heritage Week as we encourage all to participate in the celebration of our local heritage and culture through a variety of events. The Ireland Reaching Out project seeks to re-connect the global diaspora with their ancestral parish. To date, Tulla Reaching Out has welcomed back more than 200 people from all over the world who can trace their ancestry back to the parish of Tulla. All events are free and we welcome all participants. Please join us for any event during the weekend.
