Fermoy in County Cork stands on the River Blackwater, a river well known for its fishing, just like many of the rivers in Ireland.
Take the river walk out of town to the west and where the path heads away from the river, follow it up to the road through an obvious path. On hitting the road take a right and very shortly you will come across the entrance to Glenabo Woods.
Everyone we met in there had a dog in tow, the paths are wide and well worn and it is well worth the excursion. If lucky you may also get to see the elusive red squirrel. Such fabulous creatures.
As you can see the leaves are still to turn properly, so hopefully Covid may allow a return visit when the fall is in full flow.
Get out there and let nature amaze you.
