The launch of the Ballon Heritage and Tree Trails will take place this Thursday evening at 7.30pm in the Old School House in Ballon.

A project of the Rural Town and Village programme in 2018, it features eleven fantastic heritage points along the route together with a tree trail featuring twelve native Irish trees.

Ballon has a fascinating history and visitors can explore sites from Ballon Hill; one of the most important burial sites during the early Bronze Age period in Ireland, to the Lecky family graveyard at Ballykealy and the Bull Tree located on Main Street.
