“A wonderful, professional and intriguing tour covering the Arigna mines, famine graves, the lakes and islands with their Christian associations, a hands and knees crawl into a cairn built thousands of years before Christ, and into the soutrains of a a massive fort perhaps 1,500 years old, the often untold beauty of Sligo-Roscommon, and of course the heart-rending underlay of starvation, landlordism, and emigration.”

'Kingdom of Moylurg' and 'The Great Hunger' tours
