After a weekend with howling winds, snow, sleet, rain, and everything else the weather gods could throw at us, Morning Mary needed a fix, and the Stereo Pairs are always good to cheer us up! A view through the trees from a mossy bank with a pool, falling water, an ancient bridge, and in the distance a distinctive mountain. So where are we?

Sounding the Location Identified Klaxon for this one. Sharon Corbet
was in like Flynn with Cromwell's Bridge in Glengarriff
. And a nice detail in from Suck Diesel
, that the bridge has a lovely name as Gaeilge
– Céim an Ghabhair (Goat's Path), anglicised as Keamagower – ironically sourced from a German wiki article...
