Description

It is possible to walk around the whole province of Northern Ireland following the five hundred odd miles of the Ulster Way. On this tour of the Ulster Way with Michael Duffy we’ll take a stop to look at particular areas through the eyes of people who live and work in the Ulster way – this time in the land or Roe, bog and Sperrin Mountains.

The Sperrins, land that tells the story of ancient clan wars and legends, is one of the largest upland areas in Northern Ireland and is considered by many a hidden gem for its wild and unspoiled scenery. It is nowadays enjoyed by locals, conservationists and tourists alike, seeking peace and tranquillity. Meander through the deep valleys, do a spot of fly-fishing and enjoy all that the mighty Sperrins has to offer. Roe Valley Country Park offers a variety of routes along the riverside and through woodland. Combining legend with industrial and natural heritage the park has a great appeal.
