Situated close to the geographical centre of Ireland, this circular route takes the walker through the wild and mysterious Slieve Bloom Mountains - an area unknown to many visitors and almost so to many Irish people. The walker is taken on a pleasurable trip past remarkably deep glens, rock outcrops, waterfalls, and lofty summits which have a strange brooding personality of their own. On some days it is possible to see the highest points of each of Ireland's four provinces.

wier.jpg The route takes in Glenbarrow, Monicknew, Glendine East, Forelacka, Glenkeen and Glenbarrow and is 48 miles long. The longest stage is that between Forelacks to Glenkeen, being 12 miles in length and the highest peak being Glendine Gap standing at 1510 ft.
