Art & information hiking Trail over the peaks of the iron Mts. Co. Leitrim

Posted by ilíocht O'Brien on Mar 20, 2021

Development of a hiking trail from- either
1; the Cuilcagh ’stairway to Heaven’ to Drumshanbo.
Or 2; Blacklion to Drumshanbo
via the Cavan Burren, the Shannon Pot, up to Glangevlin, over Sliabh na Cille, then join the Leitrim way/Beara-Breifne way to Drumshanbo.
Along the route there could be sculptures, murals , and various other art installations that make the journey more memorable, inspiring, and educational as to the area's local history, wildlife, and the Tuatha de Danann.
I have mapped out possible routes but would like a team to help develop the initiative.
Another asset that can be developed along this route is the dis-used old cottages along the way. These cottages are often in excess of 300years and are a monument to Irish history. Forgotten and left to crumble these cottages can be restored as 'museum' type locations/destination that can be preserved, used as resting/ information points, café, and even accommodation to generate income to the landowners.
