Greenway Anyone?

Great Western Greenway goat sightings 

Cara Magazine found on all Aer Lingus flights recently did a feature story on the Great Western Greenway and all there is to see and do along the way. The Old Irish Goat was mentioned and this is what reporter Francis Power had to say:

 The Greenway also crosses the Mulranny Loop walk here - we can see it snake steeply up into the hill towards Lookout Hill and Cru-Carragh.  It’s a strenuous six-and-a-half-kilometre hike but you might just be rewarded with a glimpse of an endangered species, the Old Irish Goat.  Local man Seán Carolan and the Old Irish Goat Society have been working hard to preserve the goat and a small herd are now stabled at westport House.  “How will I know one if I see one?” I ask Sean.  “The male has a long coat, sideburns, a big beard and a mantle of hair,” he says. “he looks just like a medieval Irish king.”

 It is great to know this magazine article  may have been read by 1.4 million readers!
