Máméan Sunday

The annual Summer/Autumn pilgrimage to Máméan Mountain in the Maamturk Mountains will take place on Sunday, August 1st. Turas na Croise, the Traditional Stations of the Cross will begin at 3.00 pm. Caoineadh na dTrí Muire will be sung in the sean-nós style by Mr. Joe John Mac an Iomaire. Mass will follow immediately afterwards. All are welcome to attend. Mamean is on the Western Way route and is in the Maamturk mountains between Leenane and Recess. It is not too difficult a climb. From the Recess side it takes about 45 minutes to climb at a very easy-going pace. It is not nearly as difficult as Croagh Patrick and is a suitable walk for all the family!
