Tipperary Heritage Way - part one

I walked this trail in July 2017 but have only got around to organising the photos now. This is a 56km trail typically walked over two days. As the name suggests, the focus of the trail is on historic sites as well as on scenery.

Walking from south to north, the trail starts near Bay Lough in the Knockmealdown Mountains.

It quickly descends, with views of the flatter country we will be walking through later.

Once we reach the low-lying agricultural land of South Tipperary, we can look back at the mountains we started from.

The way continues through farming countryside, with stops at several small churches and graveyards along the way.

Then we reach the first long stretch beside the River Suir, which will be a recurring theme for the rest of the walk. We are close to the town of Cahir now and the path is less lonely, with plenty of local walkers and fishermen.

Finally we reach the approximate half-way point at Cahir Castle.

Tipperary Heritage Way - part two

Day 2 started with an uphill section over a shoulder of the Galtee Mountains - no photos as I hit some poor weather. Then a descent to the roadside pub at Kilmoyler Cross.

The weather had improved by the time I reached another riverside stretch.

One of the highlights of the trail is the sudden appearance of the ruins of Athassel Priory in the fields ahead. Although it is only a few miles from the very touristy Rock of Cashel, few visitors follow the minor roads that lead to the Priory - I saw just one family visiting during the hour or so I spent there.

As we near journey's end there are more reminders that we are in dairy country.

The trail passes yet another ruin at Hore Abbey.

Finally the end of the journey, the Rock of Cashel itself, looms in front of us.
