Last weekend I decided to go back to one of my favourite spots from my childhood in Wicklow, Glenmalure. We didn’t go there as often as we went to Glendalough but the beauty of the place left an impression on me even as a child. I thought as I went down looking for Glenmalure I had a memory of climbing to the top of the hill on the right hand side. When I got there I think it must have been somewhere else I climbed to the top of! The weather Saturday morning turned out beautifully for taking photographs.

This view is facing the opposite direction in the valley from the first. Just fantastic view where ever you look.

The monument stone below is just at the car park at the entrance to the valley. I did not realise all three glens (Glendalough, Glenmalure & Glen of Imall)  in Wicklow were used during 1798 fighting. Lots of information if you google Glenmalure and 1798.

If you are interested in going down to the Glennalure here is the google maps view. Point B on the map is the valley, point A is the village Glenmalure.
