Is there anywhere along @ancienteastIRL as beautiful as Lough Tay near our Glendalough International Hostel in Wicklow?
Valhalla, they are calling.
Lough Tay, County Wicklow.

A gorse fire near Valleymount, Co Wicklow on Wednesday; tweets about the fire
An appeal has been issued for people not to set hill fires, as experts say that hundreds of acres of land across the Wicklow Mountains have been destroyed due to gorse fires.
It is believed that the natural habitat of a large number of creatures have been destroyed as a result of the fires, and the head of Wicklow Fire Service has said there is little doubt that the fires were started illegally.
Aidan Dempsey said given the Covid-19 issues,it is “doubly frustrating” to be sending crews and the Air Corps out to fight fires which he said “are not accidental“.
Blanchardstown firefighters have extinguished a fire in the Phoenix Park after an outdoor soirée. Orange warning in place for vegetation fires until 20th April. Fires like these often damage local amenities #Dublin #fire pic.twitter.com/k2sndTYqNK

Green Party’s Steven Matthews and Erika Doyle, Steven’s wife and his General Election 2020 campaign manager
Wicklow TD Steven Matthews was forced to give up his council seat after he was elected to the Dáil.
But now his wife, Erika Doyle, has been co-opted to replace him on Wicklow County Council…
“The Green Party is a fully democratic party,” she said, before adding: “People are not appointed because of who they know and I wasn’t appointed.
“I was selected, I was nominated and a full process was gone through and the Green Party members in Wicklow believe I am capable to represent them.”
