A pessimistic weather forecast kept the crowds at home, but six of us turned up to walk. The weather remained dry and almost warm, with a gentle breeze to chase the midges away.  We took the green road alongside the brooding Loch Gleann na Fraochán and observed the flora – the carnivorous Pinguicula Vulgaris (Butterwort), Saxifraga Spathularis (St Patrick’s Cabbage) and Digitalis Purpurea (Foxglove).  As dusk approached, we gave the traditional midsummer toast to Danú, the great mother goddess, before retracing our steps.
