Discover The Trail

Independence Way, is a history trail celebrating the people of Knockraha and their involvement in Ireland’s struggle to establish an independent state and become a self-governing nation.
The trail stretches north from the N25 at the Fota roundabout near Carrigtwohill to the N8 at Watergrasshill. It meanders through a scenic rural community that is also rich in early Irish history.

There are twelve Information signs, along the trail, telling the story of those who risked everything against one of the world’s most predominant military forces. It is a privilege to walk the pathways that were carved by those people on their way to freedom.
