Thanks for sharing Tony, however I think that Corey definately needs to get out more and is missing a trick if they think that there is only one unique, off-beat, and often missed site in counties Cavan and Fermanagh. lol.

A wealth of information, Tony. Good to see Woodford in there, twice even!

Knockma Woods is somewhere I get to visit often as I've a friend who lives in the Shrule area - on the border of Galway and Mayo.

There's a Golden Mile Walk that incorporates part of the Knockma Hill and Woods:

For anyone not familiar with the area, it's 6 miles north of Tuam in north Co Galway and the nearest village is Caherlistrane. Headford is close enough too:

This is great, Tony, and gives me more ideas about my next trip! I do believe you have to LIVE in Ireland to see all there is to see, however! Am I correct in assuming that you were born in Ireland? Thanks for sharing this site, BTW.

Just a blow in (or blow back). Lived here permanently for 5 years, holidays and work for the 50 before that and still haven't seen all there is to see.
