We meet at the old railway station Glannagalt at 10:30 and walk dowmwards along a narrow country lane to the magic well at Glannagalt.  This well has proven medicinal properties and we will partake of the crystal clear water before calling to Brigid O’Connor’s sheep farm.  Brigid has kindly allowed us to pick holly from her fields and she will give a talk about the folklore and history of the area and, if we are really lucky we will meet her pet sheep and feed them.   The “B” and “C”  walkers will now return to our starting point at the old station and the “A”  walkers will continue Westwards to the ridge ahead then turning South to summit the hill of Glannagalt before making a wide sweep to the East and down to our cars at the finishing point.

Afterwards, finger food will be available at Fitzgerald’s restaurant Camp.
