    I took a spin out by Killinthomas today to have a quick look. Bluebells are still quite a way off, at least 3 weeks I'd say. Given that most of us are shooting B&W anyway, it hardly matters, and there's lots of other stuff to shoot out there. In fact its one of the best woods around I think. Next door, there is the ruins of the old Bord na Mona workers camp - other good photo ops there. However, there are lots of signs up saying no entry etc etc. I've been in and out a few times with no issues.

    I also had a bit of a look around the old Williams Waller mill in Rathangan but I can't see any easy way in there.....

    I'll post maps etc a little closer. Paul, what was the pub you had the menu for? I'll add a link to that as well.

    Sounds like a good day out but unfortunately I don't think I'll make it.

    I'm fine for next Sunday but it wasn't me with the menu, I can remember seeing someone with one but can't remember who it was.

    Hi Guys,


    OK, so I've created a google map for Killinthomas:

    Killinthomas woods, Rathangan


    The placemarker gives the car park. Just beside the carpark you can see the abandoned workers camp. The turn down to the woods is a little blind when you are coming from Rathangan - its very easy to pass by the sign. So as you pass the graveyard, then soon after you see some green sheds on the left with 3 artic lorry trailers, then the turn is just after those sheds on your right.

    Yard, green sheds and lorry trailers (NOTE: its not the turn right opposite these sheds, but just a few hundred yards further!

    This is the turn - the sign is a bit hard to see:

    Lastly, the Burrow pub is on the main street of Rathangan, near the middle of the village. How about if we meet up at 10am? That gives a good few hours to roam and do some shooting and then head back for a bit or grub?

    The woods themselves are a mix of conifer and broadleaves, and if you wander just a little off the main trails you can be in the middle of plantations of ash and birch and so on. Interspersed here and there are some fine big oaks standing in the middle of other trees. There is also a good amount of half rotten fallen timber that can make good material. The main pathways are all gravelled and there tends to be very little mud, so runners/walking shoes/boots should be fine. Any questions fire ahead.....

    Fran
