Walk off the turkey on the Great Southern Trail

Beginning at Tullig Wood, near the Devon Road, walkers will have a choice between taking a 5km and a 9km stroll, carrying them through the parish of Templeglantine and towards Abbeyfeale town.

Liam O’Mahony, organiser of the event, says the group have been campaigning for the development of the trail since the early 1990s.

“Walks were regular in the early years, and back in 1999 we held our first Christmas walk at Abbeyfeale,” explained Liam.

“It is an opportunity for supporters of the greenway to meet up over the Christmas period and burn off some of the Christmas pudding!
