Inspired by the story of Oisín i dTír na n-Óg, who single-handed threw a boulder up the valley at Glenasmole, you are invited to join the challenge of recreating this mythic feat by working together to carry a granite boulder (in pieces) from Tallaght, to make a community cairn at the foot of Kippure. There is one crate of rock left, so we need your help to complete the job within a year, in time for mid-summer!

Connecting city with mountains, and people with each other, the project is about walking and talking and connecting to the place over a year.

Check for details of walks as they are announced, or email to register your interest and receive updates.
