THERE will be events in Kinnitty and Clara on Sunday, October 7 to mark the fifth All-Ireland National Trails Day.

Minister for Arts, Heritage and Gaeltacht Jimmy Deenihan TD launched National Trails Day which is aimed at increasing awareness of the recreational facilities available to everyone and encourages people to experience a trail in their locality.

All events are organised and run by volunteer local guides and this year the National Trails Day Partners are asking anyone who has never taken to a trail before to attend on the day.

Events taking place across Offaly include:

* Slieve Bloom Walk at Kinnitty with an experienced guide who will share his knowledge of the area along with his interest in the local flora and fauna.

* Clara Bog Walk and Talk at Clara Bog Visitor Centre.

A full listing of events is on www.nationaltrailsday.ie. Event organisers can still post events for the day by logging on to the website and completing the form.
