The Salmon's Leap in The Mournes

Summer Rain Storm 21st July 2009

We've had a good few inches of rain today - heavy downpours lasting well into the afternoon. It brightened up with hot sunshine later, so we went down to see the Salmon Leap Falls - spectacular!

Charlie get a mention in the Irish Times

Fame at last for Charlie!

We were delighted that Charlie gets a mention in this Irish Times article by Deirdre Davys of 27 June about walking in the the Mournes.

At the end of the article Deirdre says: "Once back at the car park, a delightful finish to your day would be a pot of coffee in the garden of Turnip Cottage with Charley, the friendly giant, lying across your feet.
It’s okay – he’s the dog, not the owner."

Charlie would love to meet you too!
