The After Shock of the Storm


At the weekend my friend and I went walking very close to home, in Currabinny Woods.   This is a popular walking spot, and has many varieties of broad leafed trees, like beech, oak, sycamore, as well as Scots Pine.    The woods are in a very beautiful spot in Cork Harbour, and have great views across to Crosshaven and out to Roches Point.   At the summit of the woods, there is an old cairn, and also a gazebo erected in years gone by so that the residents nearby could enjoy the view of  the harbour.

The main thing that struck us on our walk, though, was the devastation caused by the recent storm, and the amount of big trees that had been damaged.  Some of them were not uprooted, probably because of there being so many trees close together, but were ripped apart higher up on the trunks.   We hope that the live parts of the trees left standing will be able to continue to grow and heal themselves.

Even with all the damage, Currabinny is still a great place for a Sunday stroll.
