Did the circuit of the Nire valley as per Joss Lynams "Best Irish Walks".
Start and finish in the Nire valley carpark. 16.6 kms and 6.5 hours in good weather.
Talked to Farmer (in his 70,s) whose land you pass through at start of walk- nice man - said he enjoys meeting walkers so be sure to stop for a moment if you see him(and close his gates)
