Carlow - Baganalstown
THE BARROW WAY
I decided that for August Bank holiday, I would get out of town and see what Ireland’s inland countryside had to offer. Even though the usual the weather forecast had predicted mainly heavy showers with a few outbreaks of sunshine: The Barrow way seemed like a pretty easy and tranquil weekend excursion.
The Barrow way or in Irish: Slí na Bearú is one of Ireland long distance trail 114 Km or 70 miles. The Walk is along the Canal and not the River (Follow the Yellow walking man)
The idea was be in the countryside, visite counties and camp in three days : The barrow way :)
Day 1: Luas then Bus to Monasterevins where the walk began:
In Monasterevin find the 25th Lock and Moore’s Bridge (do not confuse Canal and River) head towards Athy ‘s 27th Lock
In Vicars town there is a little cafe called Canal Cafe
Camp 2 miles before Athy’s.
Day 2 : Athy to Carlow
In Athy, find the 28th lock which is after Super value, then Horse bridge which is next to the Athy’s Church of Ireland
Either Camp near Bestfield Lock before entering Calow’s town or 2km after Carlow near Milford Lock.
Day 3: Carlow to Bagenalstown
In Bagenalstown catch a train back to Dublin Heuston

I was given this sketchbook journal called : Wreck this journal.
It's supposed to encourage your creative skills however I find it to difficult to remain committed to all the rules laid down,
as my sketchbook’s starting point in life begins by being dumped into my rucksack and inevitably ends up being abused by packed lunches, flask tea spillages , weather attacks, drawing, painting , tearing and polishing the life out of it.
