    1. Foraging in the Foothills Banner
      I am a wild food enthusiast and folklorist and have been for all of my life. Tapping into a lifetime love for the outdoors, centuries old tacit knowledge handed down through my family and years of my own research and experimentation, I will guide you on a foraging journey that reveals the hidden potential in even the most familiar of wild plants, those plants that surround you, the ones you walk past every day whether you live in the countryside, town or city. Join me to explore the fields and ditches of the townland area as I introduce you to the wonderful world of wild edibles and simple but powerful folk medicinals. Taste a range of my lovingly preserved and delicous wild edibles as you walk, you won't taste these flavour from the shop!
      1. This breath-taking route is unique mix of three waymarked ways which remain largely undiscovered by the tourist. The 6000 year -old Sand dunes of Murlough bay and beach walking is a nice lead into this stunning cross-border walk.
        1. Come and discover the ancient burial chambers over 5,000 years old, early Christian sites, Lord Mountjoys pursual of the last defender of ancient Ulster, Hugh O’Neill and uncover the legends amid the backdrop of mountain ranges & lakes.
          1. With the hazy, lazy days of the summer to look forward to; it’s time to look at getting out and about discovering areas of this great land. Have you heard of the Ring of Gullion, but don’t know much about it?
