Turning from the main road and discovering the ancient routes, some of which have been travelled for thousands of years, you will see Ireland in an entirely different wayFollowing the Old Road will take you on a tour of a variety of great river routes, roads, railway lossesLong before the start of the surveys, travellers who arrive on our coasts found natural refuges ports, river estuaries, and settle there, at the sight of the ocean that had brought them to this landGradually, they moved inland to more fertile soils, usually along the course of a river that provided both orientation and water, supplies and supplies.Centuries later, the great lords built their castles and the monks of their abbeys upstream from the river, at the limit of the tide.Some of these roads are still used today, while others are ignored and overgrown with vegetation.Villages, and later towns grew up around these castles and abbeys to meet their needs; towns that continue to thrive today
