THE SLIEVEMARGY WAY WAYMARKED WALKING ROUTE.
The Slievemargy Development Group came together in August 1997 under the guidance of Laois Leader to identify and progress opportunities for cooperation, development, and revitalisation of the region.
The first project the group decided to address was the provision of a major walkways venture through the Slievemargy region encompassing Carlow, Killeshin/Rossmore, Mayo/Doonane, Wolf hill, The Rushes, ArIes, Maganey, and back to Carlow along the Barrow Track
This Way Marked Way was launched at Oisin Park, Killeshin, on 26th August 2001 by Miriam O'Callaghan of RTE's Primetime program.
There was a large attendance at the launch in glorious sunshine and the unveiling of the map board for the walk was preceded earlier by a walk in the general area and enjoyed by some sixty participants.
Michael Bergin of Laois Leader said the Leader 2 initiative
The walks are now open to be enjoyed by everybody and you can join the walk anywhere along the route -Oisin Park, Wolfhill, The Rushes, ArIes, Maganey, and the Barrow Track to Carlow.
Brochures have been produced on the walks, Walking in Laois Slievemargy Way, and these will be available in local tourist offices and shops. Map boards will also guide walkers with one erected at Oisin Park, Killeshin, and others to be erected at Carlow and Wolfhill.
