    We had a great time! It was raining this am in Dublin but the skies cleared at Slane and it was such a pleasant sunny drive; lovely countryside up there. Met Shivers and Cecily and all the dogs had a nice run and various water lovers got very wet as well . Lots of very tired and silent cavaliers this evening... Cecily took lots of pics with her very nice camera so might be some photographic evidence as well.

    It wasnt actually too bad (for the people anyway, the dogs were filthy)! If there is a speck of dirt, mine will find it and walk in it!
    It was lovely a sunny and not too cold. The grassy areas were a bit soft but there are plenty of pathways to walk on.

    I took some photos too but all the good ones are of Cecily's Dora & Dougal Mine just refuse to pose for pictures and Glen went off with the camera shortly after Karlin arrived. Ill try and post the ones I have later.

    My dogs are wondering why this would be seen as a negative? That's why they enjoyed themselves so much.

    The dogs had such a good time! I have to laugh at my two... Dora who has completely white legs (obviously as she's blenheim) came home pristine... hardly a spot of dirt to be found on her. And Dougal my black and tan hairy monster was absolutely dripping in mud. Straight to the bath for him.

    Was raging with my photos... it's my father-in-laws camera and I had it set on the the sports setting to try and capture the action shots and nearly every single photo is really blurry What am I doing wrong??? Will post the best ones prob tomorrow as have friends coming over later and in a mad post-christmas cleaning frenzy!!!!!

    Claire Dun a Ri is actually pretty good mud-wise. There's gravel paths, but even on the dirt tracks it's never too muddy. Naturally Dougal comes home with half the forest floor but actually never any worse than if we walked him around Navan sticking to the paths.

    Sounds like you all had a fun walk, and that the doggies had a great time . Its such a super spot for walks. Glad you got my text, Cecily, that we weren't able to make it, wasn't sure about phone reception up in the forest

    I remember the last time we went there it was raining very heavily and everyone was soaked. Might give it a go at the week-end and see how we do.

    Cara told me to tell you all that she is a LADY and doesn't do MUD
