‘Cycling South Leinster, Great Road Routes’ Connecting us with the Past

Motorists tend to see roads as connections between Towns and Cities. I see them differently; I use them to avoid built up areas and use them to connect with our beautiful wilderness areas, our historic sites, our mountains, rivers and places of pilgrimage. The road less travelled is usually the best road to see and feel the real Ireland. My book, Cycling South Leinster will be published by Collins Press later this month. I will be extending an invitation to the launch to all who know me and read this blog!

Here are a few photos taken this evening around Aghowle on the East Carlow route; one of my favourite places.
