Shannon Pot

The Cavan Way provides a pleasant hill and valley walking connection between the Leitrim Way at Dowra, a small village community near the source of the River Shannon (the longest river in The British Isles) and the Ulster Way at Blacklion village.

St Patrick FelimIt's the only day on this walk but what a pleasant day it is. Following generally the course of the young river to its source at the mystical Shannon 'Pot', the walk follows quiet valley and riverside landscapes to the more unenclosed uplands of the spring line of the river's source. The walker will enjoy the upland section between the 'Pot' and Blacklion, which includes the forested Burren area and its cemetery of ancient tombs, stone megaliths and monuments. Fine views are obtained from these elevated upland areas.
