After 2022’s successful launch of its new and improved IAT Ireland, IAT Europe’s most westerly chapter has welcomed the Western Way, a long-distance walking trail taking in spectacular scenery in the counties of Galway and Mayo in the west of Ireland.
Ireland's chapter in the International Appalachian Trail runs from the spectacular West Donegal to the stunning North Coast in County Antrim. Get ready to take the next step on one of the world’s largest walking trail networks, the Ulster–Ireland leg of the International Appalachian Trail.
While there is nothing as invigorating as a winter hike on the IAT/SIA, some of you may prefer to just watch a hike from the comfort of your home. If you do, we have some suggestions to get you started.
A new phase of a walking trail which links Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland with the Appalachian Mountains has been launched in a bid to attract more international visitors.
The Board of the Maine IAT and I personally give a heartfelt Congratulations! to Eb “Nimblewill Nomad” Eberhart who, at age 83, became the oldest person to hike the Appalachian Trail.
The IAT participates in a two-day virtual conference organized by Dhúiche Sheoigheach & Lochanna an Iarthair––Joyce Country and Western Lakes Geopark Project.
