#Get Active Outdoors Extravaganza in the Ring of Gullion

#Get Active Outdoors Extravaganza in the Ring of Gullion

Climbing tower, archery, hill walking, fairy trail walks, warrior school…it’s all happening at Slieve Gullion for their fantastic #Get Active Outdoors Extravaganza as part of European Week of Sport!

There will be plenty to keep the kids amused as well as a cycle ride for mum and dad to enjoy around the Ring of Gullion area.

If the events haven’t tired the kids out why not let them run around in the award winning adventure play park? With events happening over the weekend make sure to pack a picnic and have a memorable day out all the family will enjoy!

All the events will be taking place within the Ring of Gullion Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) – an area of national landscape importance centred on the craggy heather covered hills of a circular ring dyke volcano that erupted over 50 million years ago.

Apart from being the most famous ring dyke in the world The Ring of Gullion and Slieve Gullion, in particular, have rich associations with Irish legends and myths. In one tale, Finn McCool was bewitched by Miluchra on the summit of Slieve Gullion at the Lough of the Calliagh Bhirra.
