Cadger's pad through the cooley mountains !!!!!!!!
‘Meitheal’ is a grand Irish word for a co-operative working group, and that is exactly what we had out on the Cadgers’s Pad through the Cooley Mountains today. Thirty fence-posts now mark the tricky trail from Tullagh Bridge in Omeath to Iomaire Fada, the summit ridge where a clear and easy track leads down towards Ravensdale. From the car park at the bridge you will be able to see twin white-topped posts. They mark the start of a slightly sunken path dug out by thousands of feet over hundreds of years. It climbs along the southern slopes of Tullagh Glen, skirting around Sloan’s Mari (booley hut) before climbing the sharp zigzags of the Molly Wee onto the ridge. Take a hike along it and give a thought to the young people, mostly girls, who carried creels of herring this way to the market. Today’s work was in preparation for our first annual Cadgers’ Walk on Saturday 25th June. It will be bilingual, part of a whole day of events in and around Omeath, so bring your cúpla focal. Míle buíochas to more than a dozen volunteers who turned out to do the work, and to Omeath District Development who paid for the fence-posts and are the key organiser of of our big day on 25th June.

Celebration of training
Yesterday evening we were delighted to invite members of our women’s group to the Dolmen Centre along with facilitators who have provided training over the past 12 months. Although not the high scale celebration event these ladies deserve, it was lovely to host a mini graduation evening to acknowledge their amazing achievements throughout a challenging year. We had representatives from Maynooth NUI, TWN, Mediation NI and Louth Leader Partnership, all whom spoke highly and in awe of this group’s achievements that they juggled alongside home schooling, zoom difficulties and the global COVID19 pandemic

Community BiodiversityAction Plan for Omeath
This Community Biodiversity Action Plan has been created with a grant from The Community
Foundation for Ireland (CFI) Environment and Nature Biodiversity programme. Omeath District Development CLG were successful with their grant
application to Community Foundation Ireland. They partnered with Simon Barron, an Ecologist
with BEC Consultants Ltd, for this project to bring together the plan since 2019.
The Community Biodiversity Action Plan (CBAP) for Omeath is intended to work towards the
promotion and celebration of biodiversity within the village and the surrounding area and to provide
a plan by which the biodiversity can be enhanced. It was therefore important that all of the Omeath
area be covered by the CBAP.
Omeath Through The Ages
On behalf of Omeath District Development we would like you to join us and local Historian Seamus Murphy to take a look at OMEATH THROUGH THE CENTURIES.
A one-hour Zoom tour of life on the lough shore through 80 centuries
Monday 15th March 2021, 7:30PM
Zoom codes will be posted later in the week. Please follow us on our Facebook page for updates.
This is what the very first inhabitants of Omeath may have looked like. In 2015 a team of archaeologists checked out the proposed site for the Narrowwater bridge at Ferry Wood and found evidence of a Stone-age settlement from before 6000 BC (The very earliest traces of human settlement in Ireland date to around 7500 BC). These were hunter-gatherers who mainly combed the shore for shellfish, but they also hunted deer and cooked them in communal pits like the one found on the mountainside near McStay’s Wood.
