I live near Kilranelagh hill, and over the years, through talking to locals and exploring the hill, I discovered that this small hill is packed full of interesting monuments.
While training on a Track and Trail Lowland Leader course in Baltinglass I saw the potential to develop tourism in the area. I started researching and discovered many more interesting things about Kilranelagh and its surrounds - including captivating legends. I have always had a fascination with history and legends, and together with a love of hill walking, Kilranelagh seemed to be the perfect place to combine the two. This encouraged me to set up a walking tour. I received permission from the landowners to do so and have been bringing people on walks ever since. Many of the ancient sites are hidden in the forest, but after much exploration, I can bring you to them.
