Fortlawn Wood is located next to Fortlawn House. Mrs Mulrooney, who lived at Fortlawn House, was locally known to be a gifted herbalist who frequented the hedges and lanes collecting plants and berries for her various poultices.
These plants would include black and white thorn trees, as well as hazel trees (revered in Celtic times). Located within Fortlawn Wood are stones and walls that were once part of the ancient pilgrim path, Tochar Padraig. After the wood, you will walk through a field toward the road. In this field is a wide limestone wall, mostly covered in ivy, which marks the only remains of a small village that was once in this area.
