This walk, above the village of Ashford, gives some fabulous views extending over Co. Limerick and into counties Clare and Tipperary. The first section leads you into the historic Cobs Road (steep) which in the past was a Mass path leading people to their Church ceremony and children to school. As you walk downhill from here, admire the spectacular views laid out before you. The winding road leads you to the Mass Rock where people gathered in secret to attend Mass in the 17th and 18th centuries.
