The first phase of the link trail joining the Avonmore Way and the Wicklow Way was completed on 26/09/2017. The project included shifting and placing 40 tons of gravel by wheelbarrow, the installation of 10 metres of bog bridge, construction of 32 steps and 18 waterbars. The attached photo shows some of the directional signage  installed which was found to be necessary as so many walkers questioned the volunteers  as to where the new trail would lead them. To date the project has taken 1316 volunteer hours over 13 work days.20170906_110310
