Hill Walking in Tourmakeady:
Tourmakeady is situated at the base of the Partry Mountains and along the western shore of Lough Mask. The scenery is outstanding and it is the perfect for an evening stroll, or for the more energetic hillwalker. The local tourism group organised the mapping of some walks in the area from Finney to Tourmakeady. The maps are drawn up by Joe McDermott.. Walking in the hills inevitably means walking over bog or peat. Bog is the Gaelic word meaning soft and every hill walker knows exactly what this means.
(There are copies of the maps on the following pages but original copies may be obtained from the local Tourism Office. While every care has been taken in compiling these maps, Tourmakeady Tourism Group, it's servants or agents, are not liable for any loss, injury damage or inconvenience sustained or caused as a result of using these guides.)
Walk Number 6- The Lough Nadirkmore Walk:
From the shop continue south west along the road for over 1km. Turn right along a track that brings the walker almost to the corrie lake. Lough na Dirkmore may be circled and the ridge of Buckaun climbed to give fine views of three corrie lakes. The dscent on the north side of Buckaun is challenging and should be avoided in bad weather. Inexperienced walkers should return by the alternative route to the bog road from Dirkbeg Lake.
