Mountain Walk On The Sligo Way (Slieve Daene) For All Ages

March 1, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

We will be walking from the Sligo Way entrance the closest to Ballygawley lough at the R284 across the Ox Mountains/Slieve Daene over to Correagh, near Slish Wood, where our wilderness school is based. Mountain guide Boris Achenbach will lead us and give us some information about the landscape and it’s biodoversity along the way. Ina Gühmann will add in her knowledge about edible plants we might find along our route and tell you one or another story of the mythology of the area. Diarmuid MacConville will be our main Gaeilgoire and will translate and chat away in Irish to you. Being part of our Seachtain na Gaeilge programme, this event will be held tri-lingually in Irish, German and English, and we will make sure to have lots of information in Irish for you.

This event is aimed at adults and children alike. It will take us about 3 or 3.5 hours pure walking time and we will make sure to take a few breaks, including one proper big picnic break along the way. You can imagine, that 4 hours of hiking might be very much for children who are not used to it. But the company of other children might help them to ‘forget time’ and get going. We will walk at a pace that will be well doable for children, but for smaller children you should bring some kind of device to be able to carry them part of the way. We might be able to provide a carrier that is suitable for toddlers and up to 3 years, if you contact us beforehand.

Make sure to wear sturdy foot wear, warm layers, bring rain clothes and a backpack with a packed lunch and lots of water, plus maybe a flask with hot tea.

Please, book in with us via pm, mail or text, if you are interested in joining us.

Adults: 10 Euro
Children over 2 years: 5 Euro
Family prices available.

Beimid ag siúl ó bhealach Shlí Shligigh ag an gceann is gaire do loch Bhaile Uí Chuilinn ag an R284 trasna na Sléibhte Ox / Slieve Daene go Correagh, in aice le Slish Wood, áit a bhfuil ár scoil fhásach bunaithe. Beidh an treoir sléibhe Boris Achenbach ar thús cadhnaíochta agus tabharfaidh sé roinnt faisnéise dúinn faoin tírdhreach agus faoin bhithéagsúlacht feadh na slí. Cuirfidh Ina Gühmann a cuid eolais le chéile faoi phlandaí inite agus leighis a fhaighimid amach ar ár mbealach agus insíonn tú scéal miotaseolaíochta an cheantair duit. Is é Diarmuid MacConville ár nGaeltacht agus aistreoidh agus labhróimid as Gaeilge leat. Mar chuid dár gclár Seachtain na Gaeilge, reáchtálfar an ócáid ​​seo trí Ghaeilge i nGaeilge, i nGearmáinis agus i mBéarla, agus cinnteoimid go mbeidh go leor eolais i nGaeilge agat. Tá an ócáid ​​seo dírithe ar dhaoine fásta agus ar leanaí araon. Tógfaidh sé thart ar 3 nó 3.5 uair an chloig d’am siúil glan agus cinnteoimid go dtógfaidh sé cúpla sos, lena n-áirítear sos mór picnic mór feadh na slí. Is féidir leat a shamhlú, go bhféadfadh 4 uair an chloig de hiking a bheith i gceist go mór mór do leanaí nach bhfuil cleachtaithe acu. Ach d’fhéadfadh cuideachta páistí eile cabhrú leo am a ‘dearmad a dhéanamh’ agus dul ar aghaidh. Beimid ag siúl ar luas a bheidh inoiriúnaithe go maith do leanaí, ach i gcás leanaí níos lú ba chóir duit gléas éigin a thabhairt duit le go mbeifeá in ann iad a iompar mar chuid den bhealach. D’fhéadfaimis a bheith in ann iompróir a sholáthar atá oiriúnach do leanaí óga agus suas le 3 bliana, má dhéanann tú teagmháil linn roimh ré. Déan cinnte go gcaitheann tú caitheamh coise láidir, sraitheanna te, éadaí báistí agus cúilín le lón pacáilte agus go leor uisce, agus b’fhéidir fleascán le tae te. Cuir in áirithe dúinn le do thoil trí pm, ríomhphost nó téacs, má tá suim agat dul isteach linn.

Daoine Fásta: 10 Euro
Leanaí os cionn 2 bhliain: 5 Euro
Praghsanna teaghlaigh ar fáil.
