Carrowkiller

What an amazing day! I decided, with the weather being so fantastic, that I'd concentrate on one place and get some vistas in the process. Carrowkeel seemed an obvious choice! Especially as I'd only ever been there in poor visibility conditions.

Each time I've been there so far I've only seen (and re-seen) very limited parts. I've always been rushing off somewhere else afterwards - well, not this time! The whole day was devoted to wandering around and I still didn't get to see everything I had wanted to.

I think that this day out ranks at the top of the list with some of the mad Cork trips and other rambles across hills and moutains. I saw a grand total of 9 people all day, two of them in the afternoon and the others as I was leaving. To have a whole mountain to yourself is something else!

Can you have a bad day in Cork?

Whenever I plan a trip to Cork I get carried away. I have been to Cork and seen 30 sites in one go - afterall it's so easy down there, and if I'd stopped at every stone I passed today I'd have exceeded that number quite easily. However, I had a plan and a group of sites that I wanted to get to, so onwards and upwards!

The list included some new sites and some revisits. Some of the sites I'd only been to in the rain, some only a dusk ... I wanted to see them in daylight and in the dry. At times the weather seemed to have other plans, but it worked out quite well. It seemed to only rain while I was travelling between sites. Nice!
