Midir and Etain Trail: Brí Leith Walk #
The Brí Leith Walk is approximately 4km. It is part of a bigger driving, cycling and hiking trail that is intended to go from Ardagh Heritage and Creativity Centre, through the picturesque village of Ardagh, across by the Farrell Castle, Abbeyderg into Kenagh arriving at Corlea Trackway. It then can be linked
up with the canal at Kenagh and The Blueway. This initiative is a long-term project undertaken by Longford Tourism Committee, funded by the Towns and Villages Scheme and facilitated by Coillte. Building the bog road at Corlea is one of Midir’s forfeits in the Legend of Midir and Etain.
