EAST OF IRELAND WALKS – ON RIVER AND CANAL – A Walking Guide by Lenny Antonelli. Like secret highways, Ireland’s rivers and canals wind their way through undiscovered parts of the country that are rich in wildlife, history and folklore. Walking our little used waterside trails reveals hidden threads of wilderness through rural and urban Ireland, rich in flora and fauna, and uncovers remnants of a time when life in Ireland revolved around its waterways rather than its roads. This guide introduces some of the best river and canal trails in Leinster, from short strolls to long day-hikes, and one multi-day trek. It features deep wooded valleys in Wicklow, the big rivers of the south-east, old canals that criss-cross the midlands, and suburban rivers in Dublin. With an eye out for wildlife, the author describes these walking routes by Ireland’s rivers and Canal, while recounting local history and offering practical advice for walkers. Whether you are new to hiking in Ireland or an experienced walker, these new and less-trodden paths will bring you to places of unexpected beauty. 128 Pages. Paperback. Full colour. 198x127x8mm
