Greenan Ely or Greenan Fort) is a hillfort atop the 244 metres (801 ft) high Greenan Mountain at Inishowen in County DonegalIreland. The main structure is a stone ringfort, thought to have been built by the Northern Uí Néill, in the sixth or seventh century CE;[although there is evidence that the site had been in use before the fort was built. It has been identified as the seat of the Kingdom of Ailech and one of the royal sites of Gaelic Ireland. The wall is about 4.5 metres (15 ft) thick and 5 metres (16 ft) high. Inside it has three terraces, which are linked by steps, and two long passages within it. Originally, there would have been buildings inside the ringfort. Just outside it are the remains of a well and a tumulus.

By the 12th century, the Kingdom of Ailech had become embattled and lost a fair amount of territory to the invading Normans. According to Irish literature, the ringfort was mostly destroyed by Muirchertach Ua BriainKing of Munster, in 1101. Substantial restoration work was carried out in 1870. Today, the site is a National Monument and a tourist attraction

Glenevin Waterfall is about 2km/1+mile from Clonmany on the Inishowen peninsula.

Start: at the car park close to Glen House restaurant outside Clonmany village and not far from the unroofed Protestant church at Straid.

Length: about 2 km return; a one hours walk.

Attractions: few walks have such a delicious surprise at the end of the journey. The waterfall at Glenevin is one of the great natural attractions of the area and should not be missed. Suitable for children and all age groups. The peace and seclusion of the area create a heavenly atmosphere.

For many years the waterfall was inaccessible until the local community came to the rescue and laid down a pathway through the wild landscape. The richness of the natural landscape has to be seen to be believed and the waterfall is truly one of the beauties of nature. There is space for cars or even a picnic just before the walk or the option of enjoying the hospitality of Glen House which has an excellent menu for the hungry traveller. The mixture of light and shade create a wonderland of nature for the discerning visitor.

The theme of this year’s tour is “Living on the Edge”.

Illustrating how families and communities have survived in Ireland from the ever changing times since the famine to the present days economic difficulties.

Not just about the harsh times experienced by different generations but of the resilience and adaptability of people to overcome these which give a sense of hope.

Overview

The Famine Village tells the story of a family and community living on the edge and surviving, from the Famine of the 1840s to the present time.

Remoteness, isolation and reliance on small plots of land made this a harsh place to live.

Yet the same families have lived here for generations.

Learn how these people adapted and survived.

In brief, the Famine Village is an outdoor museum that tells the story of life in the area from the Famine back in the 1840s, through the 1900s to the present day.

Different to any other tourist attraction in Ireland the Famine Village depicts life in Ireland as it was, uncommercialised, interdenominational interspersed with humorous anecdotes of Irish life.
