Hurt Hill

The word hurt most likely comes from our local pronunciation of the English Whortleberry. These are a blueberry or bilberry and the Irish word for these is Frochan. This is a very pleasant looped walk with some stunning views of Waterford estuary. Ample parking can be had opposite Faithlegg church which is on the Cheekpoint road. Walk back towards Waterford for 150 metres and take the first left signposted to Passage East car ferry and follow this road until you come to a T junction and take a left here past a whitewashed farm. 100 metres past the farm you will see a grassy lane on your left, follow this lane which will lead you up a gentle rise to the top of Hurthill where the spectacular views of Ballyhack, Passage East, Buttermilk point and Campile river can be enjoyed. Continue along the lane until you reached the tarred road with dwellings on either side, proceed on this road until you meet the main Waterford to Cheekpoint road and take a left here which will bring you back to Faithlegg church
