Trim castle

Bective abbey

Wicklow mountains

Lough dan


Trim castle

Le plus grand château anglo-normand d'Irlande. Beau donjon au centre, et les murs tiennent encore le coup, le reste es en ruines e ce ne sont que les panneaux sur les lieux qui nous indiquent de quoi il s'agit. En tout cas de loin très joli et imposant.

Trim Castle is a Norman castle on the south bank of the River Boyne in Trim, County Meath, Ireland. With an area of 30,000 m², it is the largest Norman castle in Ireland. Over a period of 30 years, it was built by Hugh de Lacy and his son Walter as the caput of the Lordship of Meath.


Bective abbey

Une abbaye (en ruines évidemment), perdue au milieu de nulle part. La dernière que je verrais.

Bective Abbey is a Cistercian abbey and was founded by Murchad O'Maeil-Sheachlainn in 1147 as a 'daughter house' of Mellifont Abbey.


Wicklow mountains

Je e savais pas a quoi m'attendre en rentrant dans les wicklow mountains. Belle surprise, paysage dépaysant, un paysage de tourbières. L'Irlande en posséderait 8% de la couverture mondiale, ce qui n'est pas rien quand l'on sait que ça ne pousse que d'un millimètre par an au maximum.

The Wicklow Mountains form the largest continuous upland area in Ireland.

The mountains are primarily composed of granite surrounded by an envelope of mica-schist and much older rocks such as quartzite. They were pushed up during the Caledonian orogeny at the start of the Devonian period and form part of the Leinster Chain, the largest continuous area of granite in Ireland and Britain. The mountains owe much of their present topography to the effects of the last ice age, which deepened the valleys and created corrie and ribbon lakes.

The mountain blanket bogs formed around 4,000 years ago as a result of a combination of climate change and human activity.


Lough dan

Un des lacs des wicklows mountains, très belle vue.

Lough Dan (Irish: Loch Deán) is a boomerang-shaped ribbon lake. The Inchavore river flows into Lough Dan from the west and Lough Tay feeds it via the Cloghoge river from the north. It is drained to the south by the Avonmore.
