I agree with jackill's comments on this hidden, magnificent, wonderland that is the Slieve Felim hills. Yesterday I took my mother who is now in her 80's for a drive up the hill road from Cappawhite to Hollyford and then up to Glenpadden where she was born. Almost blind now she knew every twist and turn on the road up from Hollyford, who lived where and what was down every boreen. When we got to where her home once stood, all we found was a pile of stones being reclamed by nature. But I found a lot more, I finally realized where I got my love of walking from, she was sitting beside me. She walked to school, she walked to mass, she walked to Hollyford or Cappawhite because thats what they did. We sat for a while and she told me of the children down the road she and her brothers and sisters went to school with and how they would put a stone on the bridge if thay were early and gone on, if there was no stone they would wait for each other, the very first Mobile Stone. We made our way back to Hollyford down the narrow road, she told me to "take care as the traffic was brutal on Sunday evening in the village", then she laughed out loud as if to say "got you" .
As we walk all over this island of ours lets take the time to talk to people we meet along the way, we might find out where we have all come from. Thanks mother. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/771/comment/4486/
