The cancellation of the MV trip to Lambay Island due to a small craft warning meant a free day loomed for M & I and an opportunity to delve further into Lenny Antonellis recent book East of Ireland Walks - on river and canal.

The current walk is a National Looped walk beginning on the Village Green in Durrow and is the shorter of two walks beginning from the same point. Covering some 15k of mixed riverbank, farm track, open field and a small amount of road walking, the route is sufficiently varied to remain interesting throughout.

Mr. Antonelli's directions are very good, though not strictly necessary as this is the most well signposted loop walk I have seen. His text is peppered with other facts which make it worth bringing along, from botanical to historical to esoterical. This area, for me, is not prime walking country, but it certainly has its charms and I will be back.
