A new walking group for Irish speakers, learners and those interested in the language will get underway in Armagh next Thursday 15 June at 7pm. The walking group will focus on the Gaelic and Celtic heritage of Armagh and the surrounding areas. Members of the group will be able to share information on different aspects of the Gaelic cultural wealth within the city and surrounding countryside. The first walk will commence at the Friary at the Palace Stables at 7pm on Thursday 15 June and will focus on the story of Séamus Mac Murchaidh, a famous raparee from south Armagh, and the walk will visit the old gaol (Hole in the Wall pub), the venue of his trial (Armagh library) and Hangman’s Hill. Future walks will focus on Navan Fort, Armagh Workhouse, Yellow Ford, Benburb, Carrickatuke and the River Callan.
