Hi - I live in upstate New York, but will be spending quite a bit of time again this year in Schull, West Cork. Are there any forum members located around there? I'd love to get together for a drink or a walk. Or both. I'll be over there April 5 - May 12, then again most of the summer. I have to empty out and sell my father's house there, so it will be a rather depressing time. He was the reason I did the camino in 2013. I'm also curious about the "new" Irish pilgrimage routes - not sure how much time I will have in reality, but I'd love to do at least one of them. Thanks, Cherry

Hi Cherrys,

I haven't been to West Cork in a long time, but I have talked many times about visiting as I some very happy memories of time spent in Schull. I'll get in touch if I manage to make a summer trip this year.

I hope all goes well with your visit. Not an easy time for you.

Best regards,

Nuala

Hi Cherrys,

Sorry to hear of your loss.

I was in beautiful Schull last summer, and I may be returning in August this year to The Sheeps Head peninsula about 30 mins away - if it comes off I will PM you

Hi Cherrys, I am in Co. Clare which is a good distance away but if you manage to make it to my neck of the woods PM me.

Thanks Nuala, and everyone else who responded. My father actually died a few years ago and we've been renting out the house with the hopes of moving there, but that's never going to happen, so I need to sell it. When my first grandson was born in Spain 16 years ago I met up with my father for the occasion, and afterwards drove to Santiago as he told me he'd always wanted to do the Camino (I never knew about it). So I always had it in mind that we would do part of it together. Sadly that never happened, but I went in the fall of 2013 in his honor and had his name added to my compostela.

Hi Kevin - we've been out on Sheeps Head many times, the walk out to the end is one of my favorites. Definitely get in touch if you're there - Cherry

Janey Mac, you'll have her singing "It's a long long way from |Clare to here......."

Enjoy visit to west Cork.
And now I'll have that stuck in my brain for awhile! Looking forward to hearing some good music while I'm there, and hopefully playing some too in the pubs around Schull.

Don't forget the many trails on the east coast @cherrys :) Dublin IS the real capital, you know? :cool:
Hi - There're beautiful walks all over Ireland I think. We have done some walks over nearer you in the past, but this time it's definitely a West Cork type of deal I think. Hopefully I'll get to do at least one walk while I'm there.
