Guided Walk & Big Spring Clean of Slieve Gullion

Guided Walk & Big Spring Clean of Slieve Gullion

Spring is in the air and it’s time again for the The Big Spring Clean.  Join the Ring of Gullion Landscape Partnership for a free guided walk to the summit of Slieve Gullion mountain with charismatic local guide Seamus Murphy.  As we hike to the mythical lake on the top of the mountain from the upper car park on the forest drive, there will be plenty of stops as Seamus enthrals you with tales of how the mountain formed and the adventures of Finn MacCool and the Calliagh Berra, not to mention the other varied stories and characters from the Ring of Gullion.

All we ask in return for an entertaining guided walk and look inside the famous cairn on top of Slieve Gullion is a bit of help with the Big Spring Clean of Slieve Gullion as we walk back down the mountain; improving it for local wildlife and fellow walkers alike.  With any luck there won’t be much litter to be found so it’s a fantastic opportunity to enjoy a lovely guided walk on the mountain.

The Big Spring Clean is an excellent opportunity to work together to provide a cleaner and safer environment for us all, improving the quality of life for communities our local communities, visitors to the area and local wildlife.

Last year almost 107,000 volunteers got involved in clean up events across Northern Ireland, removing an amazing 298 tonnes of litter (that’s equivalent to 128 family cars or 71 ice cream vans!); lets see if we can join other volunteers across Northern Ireland to beat that this year.

Registration essential.
