Corlea Trackway Visitor Centre

The Corlea Trackway is an Iron Age trackway, or togher, that was built across the boglands of Longford, close to the River Shannon. The Corlea Trackway is made from oak planks 3 to 3.5 metres long and around 15 centimetres thick laid on rails around 1.2 metres apart. The road was at least 1 kilometre long and study suggests that the timber used in construction was felled in late 148 BC or early in 147 BC and the road built then.

Inside the interpretive centre, an eighteen-metre stretch of the preserved trackway is on permanent display in a hall specially designed to preserve the ancient wooden structure.

Opening Time:

Open daily, 5th April-end September, 10am-6pm. Last admission is 45 minutes before closing.
