Mangans Loop

The Old Railway Walk traverses a section of the Woodenbridge to Shillelagh Railway Line which was closed in 1964. In 1965, the land ownership was transferred back to the original landowners and gradually this isolated corridor of land was colonised by the adjacent hedgerow species and became closed off from the outside world. In 2005, with the permission of the landowners, a trail was developed along a section of the track from Kilcommon to Greenhall Bridge by the Tinahely Area Development Association in co-operation with other local partners. This peaceful linear woodland trail can be enjoyed by all the family and offers wonderful views out into the surrounding fields and farmland of Tinahely. Two magnificent stone railway bridges mark the start and finish points, providing an appropriate introduction walk. The trail itself is rich with an abundance of flora and fauna and a large section is categorised as a Special Area of Conservation (SAC). The walk crosses the Derry River over a wooden footbridge not far from KIlcommon Bridge and follows its course to the famous oak woods at Tomnafinnogue. Each season offers a unique walking experience; from rich carpets of bluebell in spring to lush green summer vegetation, ripe with blackberry and crab apple and sloe in autumn in stark contrast to the bare silhouettes of winter. This trail provides a safe, off road access route to Tomnafinnogue.
