What a legend of a place Kippure Estate is.

I was down there yesterday for some training. Funnily, I have often been up the road and over the Sally Gap, but never noticed the place. When I lived in Tinahely as a young lad, our father used to drive us all over the place at the weekend. More recently, I have walked Djouce beyond.

On the way up there yesterday morning, I stopped for a sec and out pops a lovely deer from the conifer trees. There are magnificent Scots Pines on the boggy uplands, across the young River Liffey below the Centre. I wonder will they ever have children. They all look to be the same age, suggesting the young are not able to get a grip and survive. The older trees stand like lone sentinels over the wonderful Wicklow Mountains.

Anyway, check it out some time.
