    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.
