Fern Frenzy at Dooney Rock

In Dooney Wood lies Dooney Rock, a place made famous by W.B. Yeats on the edge of Lough Gill in County Sligo. The small Dooney Rock Forest Park is a short drive from Sligo Town and well worth a relaxing stroll along the Lough and then up to the top of Dooney Rock.

Before getting any where near the lough, I was distracted by some ferns releasing their arms, stretching their coils as they came alive in the mild spring air. Hope this fern frenzy provides a good start to your week.

  1. I can’t remember visiting Lough Gill, now it’s another spot on my list. Great photo’s. I always think Ferns are such mysterious shy plants who duck and hide in the middle of the dark depths of forests.
