Bad year for the bog

Saturday, September 5th, 2009

This Summer’s been very wet. Cathal Keaney and Noel Lynch are still hoping they’ll get this turf home from Abbeylara though.

Abbeylara Bog-4434

Cairn Hill

Saturday, February 28th, 2009

is the highest hill in County Longford. RTE has a TV transmitter on it. It has very easy access and there’s very flat country around there. It would have lovely views if the forestry didn’t go right to the top of it. As it is, all you can see is trees. Here’s a view of Cuilcagh, the highest mountain in Cavan from there.
