Michael Completes the Beara Breifne Way

A huge congratulations to Michael Thornton who has just completed the Beara Breifne Way this past Wednesday. He started the walk from Dursey Island on December 28th, and is pictured below with his son Michael at the monument to the Beara Breifne Way, beside the O’Rourke Castle in Leitrim, which marks the end of the walk. The Thorntons run Coolefield House, a B&B on the outskirts of Millstreet which is on the Beara Breifne Way!

Michael even met Thomas McDonagh reading the Proclamation in Cloughjordan! [1]
