The O'Sullivan Beara Way, Ireland's longest walking trail, which links counties Cork, Kerry, Limerick, Tipperary, Offaly, Galway, Roscommon, Sligo, Leitrim and Cavan, winds it's way from Ballingarry, through our little village of Aglish onto Lorrha and then Portumna in County Galway, where it connects with the Hymany Way.
