Just because people look at us as rugged mountain men, does not mean that we don't care about our image. A lot of prep goes into getting ourselves ready for a day on our stomping ground.
One foot on the mountains and we have to fight the sheep off (the female ones, mostly👀) We can take our pick of them. The problem is this, they 're easy, no thrill of the chase anymore, and believe me, at the start we had to really chase them.
It was getting to the stage we where falling out over them, and that's just not on. This bond is not gonna be broken over some wooly groupies.
When you look like us, and can play the stick like Jemo, you can understand the predicament we are in.
Going forward. We can guarantee you this. Spend 2 days hiking with us and WILL have a body like ours.
However, what we cannot guarantee you is that you will come back with your arsehole completely intact.

The Boyne Valley really is a treasure trove of early Irish history and tradition. If Ireland's Ancient East is the region for history and culture, then the Boyne Valley is very much the central point of that region. At the heart of all this is the land around the village of Slane - a place that is steeped in history from pagan and early Christian lore to more modern pop culture. The Hill of Slane is originally thought to have been the site of pagan importance but, as with quite a few pagan sites in Ireland, the coming of Christianity to Ireland is now most closely linked to the hill. This is said to be the place where St. Patrick lit a fire that first brought him to the attention of the High King of Ireland on the nearby Hill of Tara. Brought before the High King, Patrick managed to convince him to allow the spread of Christianity to continue in Ireland and the rest, as they say, is history (or at least one version of history highly influenced by Christian legend)
Today, St. Patrick's link with the Hill of Slane is as strong as ever and these Celtic crosses which can be found in the graveyard on the hill are the perfect representation of how Christianity developed in Ireland alongside a uniquely Irish culture and history
