local cycle + walk, Glendruid/Brennanstown Dolmen and Tully's high cross

Today, lá fheile Padraic, we went to scout mass, had Irish breakfast at home, cycled to near Brennanstown luas, jumped over a wall, visited dolmen and stream and valley. Met Mary and Rocky. Cycled on Laghanstown road to Tully's church. Cycled on cul de sac, over motorway, over 2 gates home via Kilternan. Whew! 17k cycle.

3 bananas, 2 apples, 2 oranges, water, apple, purple dilutable

Glendruid/Brennanstown Dolmen

We continued minor Freeciv craze. Maeve played a bit then gave up and played on cbeebies website. Kate started playing. As the Irish.,-6.2677&spn=0.232165,0.580902&z=11&om=0

We more or less used the directions from Brennanstown Vale on megalithomania site. The lane in Brennanstown lane now ends in a new 6ft wall which we climbed over. The start of that route should be changed to Carrickmines Luas stop. No wall climbing needed from there.

Start at Carrickmines Luas stop. Walk along the Luas line until Brennanstown Luas stop (not an operating Luas stop). There is plenty space to walk beside Luas line now (Mar 2011) planting is still very young. At Brennanstown Luas stop climb rail and climb over wall into valley directly OR easier to go longer way around out of Luas stop on other side, enter field and go around under the bridge into the valley. 

The walk in the valley beside stream in woods with big old trees is very nice. It is suspected that this might be NAMA lands now. A shopping center and housing/buisness developments might have been constructed here!! :-P 

Tully's high crosses and church:
