Bluebells & Buskers at Killinthomas Wood

1 Comment

Over the May Bank Holiday, Ali and I headed to Killinthomas Wood, a 200 acre forest just outside of Rathangan. Killinthomas is one of our favourite places to spend an afternoon, there is approx. 10 km of walks that you can choose to follow and if you go at just the right time in Spring/early Summer, you will travel through the most incredible carpet of bluebells and wild garlic. It really is a sight for the eyes and a treat for the nose, it’s so difficult to capture in a photograph – you just have to go there! We were attending Bluebells & Buskers, an annual charity event dedicated to the memory of Jimmy O’Loughlin, a former county councillor. It was a fantastic afternoon of music, song and poetry, set in a beautiful landscape. There was a huge turnout and it was a special atmosphere, family and friends walking together, foraging for garlic and bunches of bluebells, listening intently for sounds of music in the distance and we really enjoyed discovering and listening to talented local musicians along the way. We may have arrived back too late for the burgers but not to worry, there’s always next year! Here are some pictures we took from the day:
