New ground was taken last weekend for The Hound and myself as I headed out for Glenbower Wood at Killeagh in East Cork. Autumn can be one of the best times to go traipsing through the woods, with a myriad of colours borne by the leaves alone.
This walk largely trails the River Dissour and its wooded valley and I was informed by a local that, if lucky, one might spy red squirrels in the woods. Luck was not with me on this occasion, but the wood was a reward in itself.
The easiest way to find this place is to simply turn left at the thatched pub at the sharp bend in the main Cork – Youghal road and turn immediately left again. for more information why not simply pop on over to the official Glenbower website.
