The beautiful Cooley Peninsula in County Louth are hosting the 4th annual Táin Walking festival in 2012 which will set off the counties full calendar of events for 2012. The festival will take place from Friday 2nd to Sunday 4th March.
The festival has become a popular early fixture in Ireland’s annual walking calendar with the Cooley Peninsula boasting some of the best walking routes in the country.
The area’s famous Táin Way Marked Way was recently upgraded and four other new looped walks introduced by Louth County Council with National Development Plan grant assistance from Fáilte Ireland.
Although relatively ‘young’, the festival attracts walkers from as far away as England and Holland as well as throughout the Republic and Northern Ireland.
