Warrenscourt Lissarda Amble May 16th

Just back from Tralee it was off to Lissarda the following morning for a lovely easy amble at Warrenscourt Forest Amenity Area just off the main Cork- Macroom road near Mai Fitz’s Pub. Flanked by a meandering small river and dotted with picnic benches the pathway wend slowly upwards through the forest in a loop, giving lovely views over West Cork.

After lunch back in Mai Fitz’s we reconvened at Kilmurray War of independence museum, situated  close by. What a jewel of a local attraction with a wealth of information, artefacts and photos of 1920s west Cork life and history of Michael Collins/Terence McSweeney and other prominent figures involved in those turbulent times. Our very informative guide was equally impressed by our very informative retirees, many of whom had family connections to the area and activities of the time.
