Join local guide Una Walsh for a coach trip around this historic area.
The Ring of Gullion lies within a region long associated with an ancient frontier that began with the earliest records of man’s habitation in Ireland. It was along these roads and fields, and over these hills and mountains, that Cúchulainn and the Red Branch Knights, the O’Neills and O’Hanlons roamed, battled and died. The area, which has always represented a frontier from the ancient Iron Age defences of the Dorsey, through the Anglo-Norman Pale, and latterly the modern border, is alive with history, scenic beauty and culture.
Please wear appropriate clothing for the outdoors as we will be walking across rough ground for some stops. The event is part of the Mourne Gullion Strangford proposed UNESCO Global Geopark activity Programme.
