A few weeks ago I was in Ballymote and decided to take a bit of a detour to Keash. As you are driving towards the village you can’t help but notice the imposing Keshcorran Mountain with its 17 caves!
It’s no longer a mad scramble up to the caves followed by a roll down the mountain now that Sligo Walks has it all properly signposted. I do have to admit that I only got halfway up as it’s rained so much and it was very slippy.
There were braver souls than I though. If you look to the right of the large cave you will see two people. It certainly gives you a sense of scale of these caves. There is a great history behind the area which is explained on the ‘Voices from the Dawn’ website.
The views are fantastic even if you don’t reach the top. I’m very much looking forward to when I do get to walk up to them and of course there will be another blog post. If you are looking for full details of this walk and a whole host of others check out the Sligo Walks site.
