On my winter holidays and travelling from Limerick to Cork I needed a fix. I needed to see a park. I had to. I found one. There was some works going on in the car park. That didn’t matter.
It wasn’t Stephens green. It didn’t have to be. It was Doneraile Park. It was January. It was freezing. It was beautiful. I didn’t spend as much time there as I would have liked – but, I could have stayed there forever. It was romantic. It wasn’t pretty flowers in tidy rows. Although parks of that style have a place in Ireland too I was glad this one didn’t. It was simply nature at its best.
Some recent tree planting was evident which is always great to see.
To the Dúchas staff who look after – bulaidh bós.
