On a cold winter morning, shortly before the sunrise, we are traveling from Newcastle across the eastern part of the Knockmealdowns. The images below show the change of the light as the sun makes its way up in the sky.
This road will take you to the Mount Melleray Abbey . You see it in the distance with the Knocknafallia mountain (666.5 m) in background.
In my previous post, I wrote about the other way to cross the Knockmealdowns. What links these two roads? Both of them can lead you to the famous Cats Bar where you can get a nice lunch and spend a good time in the evening. Photographs taken over the years.
Also, both of them can eventually take you to Lismore, but that’s another story for another time.
Thank you for traveling across the Knockmealdown Mountains with me. If you are going to Ireland and travel from Tipperary to Waterford, try these two roads – R668 (R669) and ‘Unnamed’ road from Newcastle, Tipperary.
Have a wonderful week!
Just Wonderful. Thank you for the tour. Awesome photographs. g
Thank you so much! Glad you enjoy the trip to the mountains 🙂
I was fascinated by the beauty of nature, untraveled areas where sheep nurse their lambs and the place to eat is the Cat’s Box. I would love to have a nice bowl of stew or hearty soup there. Thanks for showing us the sights, Inese. xo
Thank you for joining the trip, Robin! ❤
Oh, I wish I could be there all the time. I appreciate your understanding. 🕊 ❤
Some day … 🙂
Yes, someday. . .
I am taking a trip for first time in 40 years on an airplane to New Orleans then to see my college good friend, Patrice. She was my maid of honor in my wedding. 💐 She lives half year in Michigan and half year in Mississippi. (North to stay away from hurricanes and south so she’s not cold in winter.)
I’ve been to lots of places by car, Florida, New England, etc. Just excited to be in the air 🛫 and will take photos of the French Quarters. 🎺🎷 I know you will understand and know I’m not bragging! 😊💕
Haha Robin you have all the rights to brag! Have a fabulous trip! xx
Thank you, Inese. Hopefully, my photos will be interesting, too. In any case, it will be a big change of pace. xo
