How Can I Protect You In This Crazy World?

Basking in May sunshine, The Barrow Way can be seen in all it’s glory; this is no Theme Park, it’s nature at it’s finest. Appreciated by all who use it for it’s beauty and tranquility, it is a real national treasure. We are not endowed with vast areas of wilderness so this sliver of green along the Banks of The Barrow must be retained. It is Carlow’s number one natural attraction and must be protected.

Get out and enjoy it; there are so many sections to ramble along on a summers evening or on a lazy weekend beside a lazy river…..

Christy Dignam’s lyrics say it best…. ‘How Can I Protect You In This Crazy World’?

Couldn’t resist going down south again this afternoon. Here is Clashganny to St Mullins but at 20 x speed!

Rathgeran Rock Art

This fabulous example of mysterious Rock Art is not easy locate but is well worth the effort!

No better way to clear the head and no better way to realise how unfit you are than to do a little hillwalking!

Located on a hillside off the Ballymurphy – Kiltealy road, a bit of a scramble will bring you up on the hillside and you must do a bit of searching to locate the exact location.


Here is a lovely video clip but the light unfortunately wasn’t quite right to highlight the eight concentric circles on this large granite slab.
