The First Of The Year - And It's A Snowy One

I simply had to get out after seeing Ken Williams' photos of Haroldstown (County Carlow) on The Modern Antiquarian. A dolmen in the snow is a great thing to get to. Sadly, it started snowing heavily this morning, so a trip to Haroldstown was out of the question.

I decided to do something I've never done before: make exactly the same trip two outings in a row. So, back to Glendruid (County Dublin), Tully Church (County Dublin) and Laughlanstown (County Dublin) it was. Now I know the new simple way of getting to Glendruid it was easy, although today I parked at the farm at the bottom of the lane to Tully Church and walked all the way.

It's so good to get out again. I've been at home all last week catching up on some long overdue holiday time and haven't been able to use it. The snow for tomorrow looks like it'll be heavy, so I'll not be able to get out then.
