Because last Easter Week was so warm, sunny and dry, I decided to visit the often slightly boggy Nire valley where I hadn't walked for some years. As a gentle re-introduction my wife and I did a lovely little circuit starting from the Nire car park at GR 276128 E then heading east-ish to point 466m at The Gap GR 301133 F then NW up the ridge to point 625m GR 291141 G overlooking Coumduala Lough. From here we simply followed the shoulder SW back to the car park. There is a fence to follow along this shoulder if visibility is poor. It's a circuit of just over 6Km and not too strenuous if you're out of training! A wonderful afternoon with great views and absolutely bone dry underfoot which is unusual for that area.
