More Wicklow! This is a record for me.
Máire-Áine called me last week and asked me if I’d go with her to the Tinahely Walking Festival. A festival of walking? Ma, che cosa? Turns out that it consisted of guided walks along some recently opened trails near Tinahely – which is so far into Wicklow it’s almost in Carlow.
On Saturday morning early we set off – it was another beautiful day in Wicklow. Gathered at the community centre and were on our way just before noon. There was a guide with us – and very friendly he was too. However, while he kept an eye out for waifs and strays, there was no pressure to stick with the group and after the first part of the walk to the trailhead, Máire-Áine and I (super hikers that we are) ended up more or less on our own, between two groups.I took photos of everything that caught my eye – so this is more of a pictorial essay, really.
