Free Bus Service in the Nephew Begs
This from The Wild Nephew Beg Mountains Facebook page:
The new free bus service is up and running that was set up to ferry people around the Nephin beg wilderness,
So far take up on the bus has been slow as most people from around the area are unaware of the service therefore the visitor is also unaware of it,
So let's share and get this great free bus service out there for all to avail of,
The Bus brings people from Bangor Erris to the national park in ballycroy , the claggen coastal trail , Mullranny, Srahrevagh in Shramore and to Newport town.
Some of the signs and place names around the wilderness have also led to some confusion and a few people has messaged me to clear this up, so I'll do my best
Wild nephin , should be called wild nephin beg , as its the nephin beg mountains that the park is part off, Nephin mountain is a stand alone mountain and is not part of the nephin beg mountains or the wilderness,
Also people wondering what the best route to get to Nephin beg or leterkeen have messaged me about which road is the most direct way,
The best and most scenic way is the Shramore road , the Shramore road branches off the Mullranny road to the right about 1km outside Newport, this is the road that the bus service uses to get to Srahrevagh, at one point a few years ago we had 3 signs for the Shramore road however at the moment there are none, but the local road committee are hoping to have a sign back in place soon to help guide visitors to the heart of the soul, of wild Mayo,
EastWest Mapping made a detailed map of the wild nephin beg area with all the local place names that you will not find on an OS map , Barry from EastWest mapping spent many days with locals from the area so he could put together the most detailed map ever done of the area with all old place names included along with the newer versions, so that whatever the future of the area is, at least they are recorded on the East West map that they were indeed once here.
These maps are on sales at outlets in Newport such as the tourist office and post office.

The NE spur off Lackabane is something of a knife edge, descending steeply and with even steeper sides. Watch it on a poor day.
