On Thursday evening last, 25th June, 15 a celebratory/commemorative walk took place in Lough Boora Parklands. This walk was to celebrate the 20th anniversary of a walk to the Mesolithic Site situated in the Parklands and which was discovered by the late Joe Craven, Kilcormac. The walk 20 years ago was led by Prof John Feehan and on Thurs evening last Prof Feehan was on hand again to lead this commemorative walk and give a very informative talk on the site and its importance. A very large crowd turned out for the occasion and the weather held up, making it a very enjoyable occasion for young and ‘not so young’ walkers.
On returning to the road beside the Bird Hide trees were planted to mark the occasion and in memory of Joe Craven, Freda Rountree (late of Heritage Council of Ireland) and Tom Feighery (Lough Boora Parklands), all now deceased.
