Where would you think it is?

Remotest is defined by being the furthest distance from a public road.

Yep. You're right. It's North Mayo.

You could have a nice holiday here, away from it all. Take your hiking boots, though. Smile

And what passes for public roads in this country, most people would call dirt tracks.

That sounds lovely, Greengage. Very Happy

I remember 40 years ago driving through the Black Valley and being almost physically attacked by garveys, who thought that no car should be allowed through. Mad

Them lads are still there think they own the place.
New Garden opened in Killarney , called Killarney house gardens, opened Friday when I was there, very long Herbaceous border appprox 100metres + looks like it is going to be maintained by contractors already signs of it, Middle display bed full of weeds even on opening day, herbaceous border just planted but it will need weeding, staking and dead heading cannot see contractors doing that regularly so it will get the chelsea chop early and late in the season, pity but thats the way things are going in public gardens, great views though.
