stage image

In the townland of Dromtine there was a large village all that can be seen now are ruins, which were used as sheep pens. The dwellings there were said to have been low and entered through a small opening lore was that the buildings were inter- connected by hidden passageways. Smugglers associated with Hunting Cap O’ Connell are said to have used these passageways to hide their goods from English soldiers. There are also stories of Gold hidden in the nearby Dromtine Lake. This lake is one of many glacial lakes you will see along your walk.
