Home from the Sea
...The Cruel Sea...

"...the wide lying sea...the wonderful abyss...
...the ridge-backs of the flood...
...the wet-high, cold-venomed mountains of the truly deep ocean."
(from "The Fate of the Children Of Turenn",
an ancient Irish legend,
one of The Three Sorrows of Story-Telling).

Tips - If you're uneasy about water quality, keep away from streams.

3. Tramore, Dunhill and Annestown.

3 miles west of the Suir Estuary is Tramore Bay, one of Ireland's favourite holiday resorts.
It's got beautiful beaches, but be warned -
the town and main beach are packed in good summer weather,
and the Amusement Park thumps out noise non-stop.

A few miles further west is the picturesque village of Annestown,
and Dunhill Village, noted for it's nearby dolmen and castle,
is 3 miles upstream from the mouth of the Anne River.

Backstrand and Sandhills, Tramore Bay.
Be careful on the backstrand - the tide comes in very quickly and can cut you off.
Some parts are muddy and there may be quicksand.
Best to stay near high water mark.
