A golden moment west of Kippure

We received this cracking image from Cathal McCauley taken on a walk of Kippure with Kilcock Scouts.


Cathal gives the background to the photo..

On Saturday 18th of October 2014 a party of 16 from the Kilcock Scouts Group took to hills to hike a triangular route from Glencree to Kippure via Eagle’s Crag and back via the military road to Glencree. Conditions were blustery but pleasantly mild and there was only the occasional shower. One of those showers concluded with the appearance of the rainbow pictured above. The rainbow arced over our path as we descended westward. It seemed to both sum up and perfectly conclude a great day’s walking.

Many thanks to Cathal for sharing the image. If you have an image you think we could feature on the website, drop us an email at info@walkingandhikingireland.com.
