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.
For those interested in the poem of W.B. Yeats that brought fame to this place, check out the link The Fiddler of Dooney.
