About The Ballagh – Leafy Loop
Meeting place: The Square, Durrow
This walk takes in the Ballagh and in particular the steep Ballagh climb after passing Clonageera House on the Derry Road. It starts in The Square, Durrow, and proceeds in the direction of the Kilkenny road, where we turn right onto the Derry Road, just before the church which is situated on the left hand side. Once you are on the Derry Road the walk becomes an uphill one with a short respite before encountering the Ballagh climb, which is a steep and muscle testing ascent, but ultimately an achievable one. Kids under 12 go free!
