Walk in the footsteps of an Emigrant leaving Famine stricken Ireland… local famine expert Cathy O'Neill will guide you up Carntogher Mountain, where the famine-struck emigrants once walked their final footsteps on Irish soil. You will place your own stone on the "Carn" and feel what the emigrants felt as they departed their beloved homeland. At the site of an original soup kitchen, Friel's Bar & Restaurant, you will see an authentic Famine Pot, taste the Nettle soup they would have been served and learn more about local emigrants.
Please note: this is a moderately challenging hike, which will require suitable clothing for walking, such as light layers and a rain coat, along with suitable walking shoes/boots.
Price £20pp includes morning refreshments and a light lunch. Booking essential.
Meeting point: 9.20am at The Burnavon, Cookstown. Bus pick up available in Magherafelt at 9.55am, St. Pius X School.
