Saturday October 13th, as part of the Mensana Festival, took place a 2-hour walking tour of Carlow Town.
That was a Historical Trail around Carlow Town for Mensana Fest, Carlow’s Mental Health Festival. This is the 10th year of Mensana organised by Carlow Mental Health Association (CMHA).
This annual festival promotes positive mental health. Getting out and about is important for your mental health, and the walk included some of Carlow Towns highlights including the Courthouse, the Liberty Tree, and Carlow Castle.
Our wonderful host Dermot Mulligan, curator at Carlow County Museum guided us through Carlow town and shared so many interesting and fascinating historical details about our Town.
The weather wasn’t the best but that didn’t deter a great crowd turning up.
Walking Route: Carlow County Museum, Carlow College, Carlow Courthouse, Dublin Street, Carlow Town Hall, Carlow Castle, Bridewell Lane, Deighton Hall, Potato Market, Liberty Tree and Carlow Shopping Centre.
