Carrowteige Dún Chaocháin Trail 1
The North Western Corner of Co.Mayo is one of Ireland's most remote areas and it is here that Kathriona Devereux explores a challenging walk with writer and walking guide Declan Cunningham.
The trail begins in Carrowteigue in the heart of Dun Chaochain Gaeltacht where the Irish langauge is still part of every day life. Just off the trail outside Carrowteigue lies an unusual work of art depicting Chaochain, a mythical giant who gives this region it's name. The trail runs along the shoreline where two beaches are connected by a wide area of low dunes. Despite the area's beauty there isn't another person to be seen.
