St. Declan’s Way Christmas Walk – December 27th

Knockmealdown Active will host a Christmas walk on Wednesday December 27th along a section of St Declan’s Way from where it crosses the the Dungarvan to Cork Road (N25) at Grange to Knocknaskagh beside Ballinameela church.

The walk is free, if you do not require transport you can just show up and participate. A donation on the day to defray costs would be appreciated, but is not obligatory.

Walk Details

The start of the walk is at Grid reference 172814 about a 1/2 km on the Youghal side of Grange church.

The finish of the walk is at grid reference 149945 at Knocknaskagh cross roads just off the R671 near Ballinameela church.

Both start and finish ref points are on sheet 82 ordinance survey map.

The walk starts at 11.30am.

The walk is all flat and is half on back roads, half on boreens and newly renovated walking tracks (renovated as part of the St. Declan’s Way upgrade for its inclusion as a waymarked National Trails Office (NTO) route). This walk is approximately 20 kms in length.

This is a led walk as way markings are not yet in place. It is the first section of St Declan’s Way to be de-vegetated in the re-establishment of this ancient route.
