The Clare Camino - A Pilgrim Way

The_Clare_Camino_-_A_Pilgrim_Way Pilgrimage is one of the most ancient of Christian Traditions. Walking on pilgrimage is a way of expressing our journey to God.

There are many famous pilgrim paths where people have completed a journey not simply to a physical destination but also into themselves and closer to God. This ancient tradition is now being revived with the Clare Camino.

Based on the idea of the famous Camino di Santiago pilgrimage to the shrine of St. James in Compostella, a group of people have come together to revive ancient pilgrim paths in the Clare area. It all began last year when people from all over West Clare took part in a pilgrim walk around the sites associated with St. Senan of Scattery Island and the Loop Head peninsula.

The pilgrim paths have continued to be developed over the last year with people travelling on foot between places that have a sacred character from both our celtic and Christian Heritage.

The most recent pilgrim walk on the Clare Camino took place over the June Bank Holiday from Flagmount to Killaloe and included a visit to Inis Cealtra, the site of the ancient monastic settlement of St. Caimin.
