I have been asked to post up route maps of local cycle routes, here is a very handy 17kms loop that takes in a visit to an interesting graveyard!
One of the first things I do before I start any cycle is check the wind direction! I prefer to face the wind on the way out and have it in my back on the return leg – it certainly feels better anyway!
Tonight I christened this route Disney Land!
On such a beautiful evening as tonightI headed out to a graveyard that is seldom visited – if you are to judge by the overgrown state of it. An awful pity – because Clonmelsh graveyard is another Carlow gem.
Walt Disney is probably one of the most recognised names anywhere across the globe and some of his ancestors are buried here.
That’s a good reason to take the bike out on a fine summers evening.
As famous as the Disney name is, the graveyard is also the resting place of the family of Pierce Butler – one of the signatories of the American Constitution!
It also contains one scary crypt! This crypt is wide open and sadly vandalised.
Continuing on my nice little journey I followed some lovely quiet roads that took me back to Carlow passing this lovely post box at Moyle.
Lots to see on safe back roads around Carlow Town – never more than 5 miles from home.
