Stroll Skibbereen Jan 24 2017

Weather was wetter than forecasted so we opted for a shorter route that would include visiting a nearby geocache adjacent to the old Skibbereen railway station. We walked a circuit through the Avenue, past Glencurragh Wood and stopping by 2 second hand shops on the way.  As we approached we noticed a woman poking around the area of the geocache and guessed she was after the same thing. Killahangil logged us there before we even got home. Before we went out we had looked at some video footage of Jeremy Dellers reenactmnents  We’re Here & The Battle of Orgreave

Lots of ideas at Skibbereen Luncheon Club, Carrig Loop, Lissard, Glencurragh Loop, Grotto Loop, Derry’s Loop – even a loop taking in all the bars in Skibbereen. It was very wet so we went for a shorter walk in Glencurragh and were totally surprised to find a fairy trail running through the little wood adjacent to the avenue – it really brightened up a very wet and windy afternoon for us.

Public Parks & Public Art – Again visiting places I had never been. Two parks – one without any name and plenty of statues commemorating O’Donovan Rossa & Cannon Goodman alongside plaques and random street furniture and of course the river Ilen.
