“Welcome to Youghal, we’re glad you’re here” – Youghal gives a huge warm welcome to The Celtic Corridor volunteers on their epic journey.
Picture: Mayor of County, Cllr. Mary Linehan Foley with Jason Ansbro and Tony Gallagher welcome The Celtic Corridor group at the quayside in Youghal on Saturday 25th July 2020.
The adventurous group arrived in Youghal by walking, cycling, kayaking and boat. The group embarked on a 12 day journey across the South Coast of Ireland to explore the potential of establishing a new initiative called The Celtic Corridor.
Starting in Rosslare, they will travel along the southern coastline through Wexford, Waterford and Cork to reach Ireland’s most south westerly point, Mizen Head by the 1st of August.
One of the many positives that came out of the meet and greet was “floating an idea” to bring back a cross-channel ferry service between Youghal in County Cork and the Ferry-Point in County Waterford. The Mayor said, “It’s a no brainer”
Great thanks to Jason Ansbro who transferred the group in his boat to the larger boat, The Maeve Óg, with Tony Gallagher of Blackwater River Cruises
