Rosses Point, Sligo
Rosses Point is a seaside village with a long seafaring history. It is also the home to an 18 hole championship links course, a blue flag beach and Sligo Yacht Club which has hosted many National, International & World Championship events. Rosses Point is an easy walk for all ages as it is mostly flat. Starting from the Church of Ireland the walk takes you along the promenade where the Garavogue meets Sligo Bay. With the mountains to your left and the old village of Rosses Point to your right this stretch takes you to the Pier and the Lady Waiting on the Shore, dedicated to all the women from Rosses Point who waited behind as the loved ones when to sea.
