Love story telling and guided walk of Vary's Loop, Letterkeen - Visit North Mayo

Love story telling and guided walk of Vary’s Loop, Letterkeen

This Sunday, the eve of Valentine’s Day, Wild Nephin Ballycroy National Park will host a very special event to celebrate an ancient love story!

Starting at 11am, at the Letterkeen bothy, there will be a reading of the great Irish love story ‘The Pursuit of Diarmuid and Gráinne (with a twist!). This retelling of the legend has been inspired by Leaba Dhiarmada agus Gráinne (Diarmuid and Gráinne’s bed), an ancient promontory fort that stretches out into Lough Feeagh to the south of the National Park.

The surrounding valleys and mountains will set the scene of the great love story. Join to see how this epic tale unfolded here in the Nephin Beg Mountains.

Following the reading, there will be a guided walk along the new 2.5km Vary’s Loop at Letterkeen, from where panoramic views of the surrounding mountains and valleys, that inspired the story, can be seen.

This is a FREE event.
