From Canada’s Rocky Mountains to the Amazon to Australia’s Gold Coast –  just to read Patrick McGinley’s ‘Walking CV’ could give you blisters and leg cramps!


One of Patrick’s very favourite walks is the Doorus Peninsula, he believes there’s nowhere to match this 7 kilometre finger of Heaven that graces Lough Corrib. Magical scenery, beautiful gardens and wildflowers, birdlife beyond compare, wonderful people to meet along the way – and a bridge ‘endowed with great peace’. The area has a rich cultural history and heritage, interesting family interweaving and lore, and the 1887 Cloonbrone Schoolhouse situated right on the lakeshore. Its 1800 intact limestone Kiln recalls Cornamona’s industrial heritage.

Walkers who prefer a shorter walk will have an opportunity to return to their cars and will complete an enjoyable 7 kilometre walk. 


This walk will inspire you to enrich your life by walking all 12 of Patrick’s ‘Our Lough Corrib Walks’, available August 1st.


Don’t miss this  Cornamona to Inishdoorus walk sponsored by the Corrib Beo Partnership which departs from the School in Cornamona  at 11:00 on Sunday morning May 21st.
