Join us for a very special journey - the Camino Mhacha - travelling in the footsteps of Cú Chulainn, the legendary hero of Ulster.

About this event

On the first weekend of August 2020, the inaugural Camino Mhacha was held, a 25.5 mile walk through a land steeped in myth and legend. Following in the footsteps of Cú Chulainn, Camino Mhacha begins in the Ring of Gullion, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with walkers departing from the village of Mullaghbane. Winding its way through glens and hills, the Camino follows a route of stunning landscape and natural beauty culminating in Armagh City, where a heroes feast awaits walkers at Aonach Mhacha.

Now an annual event, Camino Mhacha is organised by Aonach Mhacha, the new Irish Language and Cultural centre in Armagh and funds raised through the registration fee will contribute towards the ongoing development of the centre. The registration fee of £120 will cover the cost of light refreshments along the route, the heroes feast in Armagh on finishing the Camino and a commemorative Camino Mhacha t-shirt.

Walkers are encouraged to fundraise individually and are asked to consider Aonach Mhacha as their designated charity of choice, however fundraising for other charitable causes is not precluded.

Reáchtáladh an chéad Camino Mhacha ag Féile Lúnasa 2020, siúlóid 25.5 míle trí cheantar atá ar maos sa mhiotaseolaíocht agus sa litríocht. Ag leanúint coiscéimeanna Chú Chulainn, tosaíonn Camino Mhacha i bhFáinne Cnoc Shliabh gCuillinn, ceantar sár-áilleachta nádúrtha, agus na siúlóirí ag imeacht ó shráidbhaile An Mhullaigh Bháin. Casfaidh an Camino trí ghleannta agus trí chnoic atá suite i dtírdhreach atá fíor-álainn ar fad agus an-saibhir ó thaobh an dúlra de. Críochnóidh an tsiúlóid i gCathair Ard Mhacha áit a mbeidh féasta na laoch ag fanacht leo.

Ócáid bhliantúil í anois Camino Mhacha atá eagraithe ag Aonach Mhacha, Cultúrlann úr i gcroílár Chathair Ard Mhacha agus rachaidh an t-airgead ó na táillí iontrála chun sochair an ionaid sin.

Iarrtar ar shiúlóirí airgead a ardú iad féin agus smaoineamh ar Aonach Mhacha mar fhaighteoir fiúntach don airgead a ardófar ach níl cosc ar airgead a ardú do charthanachtaí eile.
