      ... John is definitely a family name, but it could be a family name in many families. The next archive we looked at was the Griffith valuation of 1950. We did find a Richard McGrath, not in Mantlehill but Thomastown, just down the road. He rented a house and garden, 24 perches which is about 607 square metres, which I'm told was small for the time. After that we had no where else to go so John recommended I search the records at the Tipperary genealogy centre. I made the trip ...

Slight issue along the way. On the road was a lovely little town called Cappoquin which has this beautiful old stone bridge across the river.

We walked from the base up to the top. Catherine tells me that when her kids were little they used to go up there all the time for picnics and birthday parties, carting the food and equipment up there on foot.

      It’s a beautiful walk ...

      ... the lake's name translated as Lake of Learning, tying in with his translation of Fore as the Town of Books. However, other sources seem more inclined to the tradition that the lake was named after the daughter of the fabled Manannán mac Lir (see Children of Lir).

      ... to encompass the pillar and have fingers meet. Guess he could have been a Viking. We also visited St. Kevin Cemetery in Glendalough. It was an early graveyard with both Celtic and Catholic symbols on tombstones. We had lunch in town and split a shepard's pie plate. Long days and hot nights lead to tired travelers.
