Thanks to Gina from twitter for suggesting Knocknarea as my K. I had a complete block and couldn’t think of anything! As I was in the dentist today these are old photos but I hope you like them.
Knocknarea is a 327 metre high mountain which is near Strandhill in Sligo. It’s a lovely walk up it and the views from the top are stunning, you can see all over Sligo.
At the top of the mountain is Queen Maeve’s Cairn. Legend has it that you should take a stone up the mountain with you to leave for Queen Maeve, it’s meant to bring good luck. It’s also said it’s bad luck to climb up the cairn itself but these people obviously didn’t hear that.
The photo above is Knocknarea seen from Carrowmore Tombs.
This is the view from the top of Knocknarea. You can see Strandhill airport and Coney Island.
