The River Walk

There is no nicer place for a walk on a summer day than along the bank of the River Feale. I took this walk last Saturday with my 2 grandsons. We went onto the walk from the bridge side. The level of water in the river was really low. Very near the bridge we spotted the crane who lives there.

He was chilling out and surveying his kingdom.

The boys skimmed a few stones and trailed a twig.

The walk is quiet and sheltered from the bustle of traffic.

We came up the road at the back of the Listowel Arms.

Interview with Mary Keane

What a wise woman she was. There was no poverty when we were all poor because we were all the same.
