TOUR TO THE OLD BOG ROAD AND LEDWIDGE MUSEUM

Today we will visit “The Old Bog Road”.  Perhaps the most famous of all Irish Ballads was written about this place in North Kildare by Teresa Brayton (nee Boylan) Teresa was born near Kilcock in 1868 went to school in Enfield and emigrated to Boston in 1895. 

She married a French Canadian named Richard Brayton.  She also penned some other wonderful ballads i.e. Ireland Speaks, The Croppies Grave, The Land Where Fairies Play and of course the song that was recorded by many artists like Johnny McEvoy, Josef Locke, Hank Locklin and many more “The Old Bog Road” After our visit to the old bog road we will visit Teresa Brayton’s grave in Cloncurry Cemetery.

 We will also visit The Francis Ledwidge Museum in Slane (housed in the Cottage where he was born) Francis was a soldier and a poet from Co Meath who was killed in World War 1 in 1917. He penned some wonderful Poetry during his short life having been killed 2 weeks short of his 30th birthday. The full story will be told by John Candy of Candy Tours on the day, of his ill-fated love affair with Ellie Vaughey who is laid to rest on top of the hill of Slane which we will also visit on the day.

Once again as we hit October our thoughts turn to our annual “Storytellers Tour” and after thinking long and hard as to where we would travel this year and after asking some of our regular customers it came down to our favourite destination “Killarney”

This year we will take on the beautiful Ring of Beara and weather permitting we will cross the famous Tim Healy pass on our way to the lovely harbour village of Kilmackillogue where we will indulge in Salmon Sandwiches that you won’t find elsewhere. We will stop awhile in beautiful Glengarrif in West Cork with its Café’s Shops and relaxed way of life.

Back in Killarney we will once again visit Muckross House and Gardens, Kate Kearney’s Cottage, St Marys Cathedral and this year we will have a Boat trip on Lough Leane. We will be staying in the lovely Castleross Hotel on the Killorglin Road. Why not join Candy Tours for a never to be forgotten holiday.
