St Brigid’s Loop
A-B. Starting from the mapboard at Ballinagleragh Church follow the red (and purple) arrows onto the lane which takes you by a stone shed to the left of Mulvey’s Public House and shop. The purple arrows are for the longer Ballinagleragh Loop. [Note that you are also overlapping with the Leitrim Way – marked with the familiar yellow walking man and arrows.] Continue to follow this lane for over 2km to reach a junction with the R207. Take care as you join the road – turn right and walk on the right. Continue for 300m to reach a junction with the L8295. Turn right here.
B-C. Continue to follow the red and purple for over 2km to reach a junction with a forestry roadway on your left. The Ballinagleragh Loop (purple arrows) turns left here – but you continue straight.
C-A. A short trek of 200m takes you to a 3-way junction where the purple loop rejoins from the left. You veer right here and continue to follow the red and purple arrows for 500m to a T-junction where you turn right. Enjoy the next 500m as the loop returns to the trailhead.
