Carrowkeel

IMG_5423

Yesterday morning myself and Rocket-dog headed up Carrowkeel which is a Megalithic passage tomb cemetery in the Bricklieve Mountains. It’s years since I was here so it was great to go back again. When I arrived I saw the sign said no dogs but I couldn’t leave himself in the car and he was on his lead the whole time. It’s probably because it’s open farmland and other dogs might chase the sheep.

IMG_5439All these pics were taken with the phone but I’m going back again with the camera.

IMG_5466It’s a really lovely walk, not difficult at all. In fact easier than Knocknarea and much more peaceful.

IMG_5514-001The views are stunning. Rocket-dog was very impressed.

IMG_5487It was also really warm on the walk up, you’d never think it was October, it’s been beautiful.

IMG_5534It did get colder when we got to the top though so I needed my coat for that bit. It’s a really magical place, you could feel something very special about it. I think it’s a lot nicer than Carrowmore, I guess because it hasn’t been developed, it’s left as it should be.

IMG_5539If you do get a chance to go it’s well worth a visit. It’s just off the N4 at Castlebaldwin. I’ll be back, with the camera next time! Here are the rest of the photos…thank heaven for camera phones. Oh and as for the lack of money and petrol, guess what? I found €8 in my coat pocket…and I never wear that coat!! Someone out there was looking out for me. 🙂
