    Hook Head, County Wexford

    This week Ella walks the dramatic coastline of Hook Head in Co. Wexford, starting in the gorgeous fishing village of Slade. Ella’s guides on the coastal walk of Slade to the Hook Head Lighthouse are Billy Colfer and Kevin Whelan.

    This programme was first broadcast on the 26th of August 2005.

    In Shank's Mare, Ella McSweeney goes walking around the country and introduces us to the people, flora and fauna she meets along the way. From stunning Donegal to the rough edges of Mayo's coastline, ancient woodlands in Derry to rugged Kerry, she hears about the wildlife and people that make Ireland's hills, mountains and coastline such a magical environment for walking.
