New Guide to Great Southern Trail Published

The Great Southern Trail [GST ] has just published a new guide for walkers and cyclists to the developed Co. Limerick section of the old Limerick to Tralee railway line. Over 35 Km of Greenway is now available for off-road recreation and the guide gives directions to the principal access points along the route between Rathkeale and Abbeyfeale.

The guide also provides a map detailing the Co. Kerry section of the old railway; most of this is as yet undeveloped but remains in CIÁ‰ ownership.

The brochure will be formally launched at Ardagh Community Hall on Heritage Sunday 26th August at  5.30pm and is also downloadable from www.southerntrail.net or by clicking here [PDF 1.85 MB].

The GST acknowledges the support of West Limerick Resources and Limerick County Council.
