Ben Bulben & Streedagh - Streedagh Beach
Writer and broadcaster Manchán Magan best known for his travels books and TV series undertakes two looped walks in County Sligo, one around Benbulben Mountain and the other on Streedagh Beach.
The second walk in Co. Sligo that Manchán undertakes is the Streedagh Beach walk which starts approximately 6km from the Benbulben loop at Streedagh Beach where Manchán explores Sligo’s Armada coastline and samples some of the local wild seafood with forager Prannie Rhatigan. The Streedagh beach coastline is the final resting place of three Armada shipwrecks and Manchán meets Eddie O’Gorman, a local historian who is an expert in Spanish Armada history. Finally, Manchán completes his walk to Staad Abbey which has existed since the early medieval period. This may not be quite vigorous.
