The routes will give walkers a taste of Irish folklore as they pass the resting place of Fionn MacCool - Slieve Foye - and the battle ground in Cooley where Cuchulain defended Ulster against the armies of Queen Meabh of Connaught.

#Note for Walkers
People who visit the Ravensdale area for recreation are asked not to bring dogs (even on a lead) onto the hills, to close gates, respect property and to minimise the impact of their activities on farmer's livelihoods. The presence of a dog, even on a lead, can be distressing to sheep.
