May, Summer,Warm Weather

The cold weather is finally going back north again and so its Summertime in Fethard and Slievenamon., The Fethard area and the woodlands around the base of Slievenamon are very beautiful during the month of May.  Why not organise a group to have a guided tour of medieval  Fethard and/or walk to the Holy Year Cross on the shoulder of Slievenamon above Killusty village. Allow two hours for a Guided Tour of Fethard and also two hours for a ‘return walk’ (from parked car) to the Holy Year Cross. For the energetic it is a wonderful 6km (4ml) walk from Fethard to the base of Slievenamon,,,past Grove Estate, some Coolmore Stud farms,Kiltinan Castle Estate and then  over the River Anner at Bulliagh Bridge and onto the mountain lane and the track up to the Cross.
