YEATS TRAIL ROSSES POINT

Wednesday 28th January 2015

We know that next Wednesday is the anniversary of WB Yeats. He died on 28th January of 1939 and that same year, in September, World War Two began. This was a vulnerable and historic period for Ireland. We are going to do a guided historic trail at Rosses Point at 2.30pm to mark his anniversary. We'll tell you how Yeats travelled back and forth from here to town and to Liverpool, we'll show you some interesting sites and we can recite some of his work. To book, please click on this link or email us on info@seatrails.ie or call 087 2405071 before Tuesday the 27th at 12pm. Thanks!

CARROWKEEL TOMBS AND THE MINERS HISTORICAL TRAIL

Sunday 22nd February 2015

The Carrowkeel landscape in south Sligo is fascinating and very beautiful. The tombs of Carrowkeel are very ancient and pre-date the pyramids of Egypt. One has a roofbox and faces the setting sun during the summer solstice. The tomb lights up for a short time. The design and building of the tombs is incredible for the time (c.4,500 years ago). Your archaeologist guide will provide you with an infomative and accurate insight into the people who lived here, the tools they used, the burial rites and about the lay of the land at that time.

Please allow for c. 2.5 hrs max for this trail

Relatively easy track with uneven ground and some bog/wetland. Hiking boots required.

Meeting at the carpark at Carrowkeel at 12pm
