Anne Kennedy from Waterford

Walked on a glorious September day. Stunning views. Very well signed. Fish jumping in the lake, bird of prey fishing. Recommend hiking boots ankle support over stony climbs. Beautiful timber bridge over stream, timber pathway over rushes to protect habitat. Highly recommend.
