Route Description

A move to Clonmel in 2017 meant a need to seek out new cycling roads in South Tipp. While fairly local to the area I soon discovered I didn’t really know the local by roads and lanes. On my fairly short wanders I was struck by the amount of old abandoned churches and graveyards in the prettiest of countryside. There are 17 in total

The idea of route is simply joining the dots with the quietest of roads and avoiding any major climbing. The start point in Marlfield village with the first control at the Protestant church on bank of Suir. From here we follow Suir to the villages of Newcastle and Ardfinnan before heading west to the 2nd control Knocknagapple (Templetenny) a graveyard once visited by a sitting USA president. We head north east again towards Cahir where we pick up Suir again following in north until crossing it in Ardmayle
