Drumsheen Looped Walk
Ballina Co. Mayo
Walking
A-B. From the trailhead follow the green (and purple) arrows out the back of the car park to join an old roadway. (The purple arrows are for the longer Glen Loop). Turn right and follow the arrows to reach a junction with the R294 - cross with caution and join a bog road. Note that you are also overlapping now on the Foxford Way - a long distance walking route marked with the familiar yellow walking man and arrows. After 200m both loops turn right at a 3-way junction, and follow the bog road for 1km where it turns sharp right. Shortly after this bend the Foxford Way turns left - but you continue straight ahead. B-C. Continue to follow the green and purple arrows as the loop takes you along a series of bog roads for 3km when you join a surfaced roadway and turn right. Follow this roadway for 600m to a crossroads - turn right onto a sandy road. After 300m you cross the R294, and onto a minor road. Another 300m takes you to a sharp left bend - where the Drumsheen Loop (purple arrows) turns left - but you proceed straight ahead and join an old green road. C-A. Continue to follow the green arrows as this old road takes you past the ruins of old homesteads and farms. It’s only 1km back to the trailhead.
