Buttevant, West Loop

Category: Country Walks
Difficulty: Moderate
Starting at St Mary’s Catholic church on the main street, proceed in a southerly direction. Traffic on this short section can be very busy at times, so due caution is advised. Continue along this route until, shortly after passing a Grotto on your right, you come to a small road (on your left) leading to Ballybeg Priory and Columbarium.

Turn left at the first crossroads, continue straight through the next crossroads, and cross the Awbeg River at Cahirmee Bridge.

Continue through the next two crossroads of Ballyellis and Boherboy.

Upon reaching the junction at Kilcolman West, turn left and follow the winding road back to Buttevant, crossing the four-arched bridge at the entrance to the town.
