Slieve Foye
Hi paulocon. I climbed Slieve Foye a couple of years ago from Carlingford. It was steep in places but I think your children should be well able to handle it. From a previous post I see your children are 9 & 11. No bother to them! In any case, as with any hike with others, it's always a case of checking to make sure all walkers are ok. If anyone is struggling it's time to turn back. (not to be confused with those who simply need a breather) Having worked with disadvantaged children for many years I always remember something one of them said to me. When I asked a particular girl of 9 why she and the other children were deliberately getting muddy in their good clothes she said "we're kids, that's what we're supposed to do, we're supposed to have fun"! Indeed I took four brothers aged 7-12 up Lugnaquillia on a sunny day many years ago. They were rightly proud packing their little rucksacks for the day! Children love adventure, new experiences and safe risk taking. Well done for bringing them along!

Knockannavea: Nice views to be had

While not very challenging, recent felling means the views along the way and from the summit are pleasant enough. A nice spot for a lunchtime walk.
