À propos de votre hôte

I am a sheep farmer in Wicklow. For 8 months of the year my sheep graze on the mountain between the Glendalough and Glenmalure valleys. I frequently need to go up on the mountain to check on their welfare. I am also a very keen sheepdog trainer. I really enjoy training my dogs to work on whistle commands at distances of up to 1k. dogs like these are invaluable when managing sheep on the mountain…

Au programme

We meet up in Glenadalough and I will introduce you to my dogs. We will then travel in my pickup truck up the mountians via some forestry roads (20mins) . When we get to the end of the road, we need to hike about 90 minutes to the summit, and up there we can better assess the locations of the sheep. As we move around up there, through the morning, we gather small packets of sheep using the dogs…
