Feede me Seymour, Feede me Now!

This small hill can be a little shop of horrors, but only really for a very short stretch towards the top, as has already been pointed out in the summary! In truth this hill can be a small treat, but if you have visited it and have not made a visit to it’s excellently preserved souterrain then you have missed the hidden gem that is offered by the walk here. It may be derided by some on this site, but Feede not only offers this, but also has a total of 10km of forest track which are ideal for an evening walk to many locals.

The souterrain on Feede is an excellent example of this early Christian antiquity. Although the county of Louth (and particularly north of the river Fane) has the highest incidence of these structures within the country, this is the best example I have been in during my lifetime. It can be easily accessed and is just off the forest track at approximately J0783415546 D, watch out for the padding on the fence, the entrance is marked by a couple of sycamore sticks. You can crawl in (bring your torch), but once in this man made cave opens up and extends back for maybe 100 metres, with some off shoots. It goes without saying that if you are claustrophobic then this will not be for you, but if you have a childish sense of adventure, then it most certainly will be, enjoy!

My geology would not be the sharpest, but to the best of my estimation this hill would be unique in the mountainviews list for this area also. By my estimation this hill would be part of the Ring of Gullion and as such, the only one that falls within the county of Louth rather than Armagh. But I will admit that I am very much open to correction on this point!

Finally, if you wish to extend your low level walk on this lovely little hill then there is an alternative approach through the graveyard, behind the church at the bottom of “Jonesborough Hill”! Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1242/comment/17525/
