Dysart Walking Tours.
Last year the Walking Tours of Dysart O Dea archaeological sites proved very popular with locals and visitors, walking on the quiet fields and roads of Dysart. The walk, around 5 km., takes approximately 3 hours and includes information on each site. It starts from Dysart Romanesque Church and Round Tower at 12 noon on Sunday July 11, ​ and ends back at the same place.​
Local historian, Mary O Halloran, who was born and raised in the area and has a wealth of knowledge of the history of her own place, is leading the walk.
Mary intends to have another tour on August 8th to different sites which will include the Soup school, Rath medieval church and a hill fort, she may be contacted on 087 2830950 or to book a place on the walk.

The u14 Camogie team had a great win against Ballyea in a very exciting game on Wednesday of last week in a very exciting game.
Due to the Covid restrictions over the past year or so, fundraising has been severely curtailed, however, Brid​ McNamara, PRO of Clare Camogie, is taking to the roads again this year in a fundraiser for the organisation. ‘One million steps for Clare Camogie’ will launch on July 1 and go on until July 31. Brid will lead out the Executive Committee in completing the challenge, she will complete daily walks at home and during lunch breaks and will visit each of the twenty six Clare Clubs where members of each club will stride out with her, while each of the officers will complete a 2km walk each day. The support of the public will be very much appreciated.
