Beara Breifne Way

The proposal to develop the Beara Breifne walking trail was suggested by the Ballyhoura Way Committee in 1990 when they were developing the Ballyhoura Way in Counties Limerick and Tipperary. Beara Tourism developed the Beara Way walking route in Cork next and the Suck Valley Way was developed in Counties Galway and Roscommon in 1996. The next routes to be developed were the Cavan Way. Leitrim Way and Miners Way in the late 90s. In 2008 the Heritage Council with Failte Ireland part funded the next phase of the project which included Phase 1 of the Hymany Way in Galway, the Multeen Way in South Tipperary and Sli Gaeltacht Mhuscrai in Co. Cork. In 2012 the Hymany Way was joined with the Suck Valley Way.

Work left to be completed:
In 2013 the Ormond Way in North Tipperary
Lung Way in Roscommon/Sligo area
And a bridge to be developed over the Blackwater in Co. Cork.
When all this work is completed the route will be unbroken from Dursey Island to Blacklion in Co. Cavan. All this work could not be completed with =out the assistance of the 50 community groups along the way, 11 county councils, Heritage Council, Failté Ireland, National Trails Office, Department of Environment and The Partnership Companies and farmers
