Twenty-one people left the car park at Muckross bound for Gowlane Cross to start our 16.1/ 17/ 18 or even 19 Km hike (depending on which “fitbit” you believe).  The road, originally built to connect Killarney to the sea, is now a rough track, strengthened in places by boardwalk.  Our walk was enlivened by nature talks and wildlife observations and by banter with members of another club that we met along the way.  In the Esknamucky Glen, we found some graffiti dating back to 1815 (most likely drawn by the 99th Prince of Wales Tipperary Regiment). 20190407_122350 20190407_122354 20190407_131424 20190407_135115 20190407_145625
