Carrickgollogan - Kilternan *

Carrickgollogan wood, located in the south east corner of county Dublin comprises around 85ha (210acres) of mixed woodland including Lodgepole pine. Noble fir, Japanese larch, Lawson cypress, Scots pine, Birch and Beech. In addition Furze and heather can be found on unplanted areas/ditches. The trees and other flora provide habitat for badgers, rabbits and a variety of birds. There are about 8km of forest roads at Carrickgollogan which provide a variety of walks. Two of the main attractions are the viewing rock at Carrickgollogan hill to the south of the property and the now disused lead mine chimney at the northern boundary. Lead mining and smelting took place at the Ballycorus lead mine in the early 19th Century and continued until it was closed in the 1920s. No trip to Carrickgollogan would be complete however without visiting the viewing rock. It is worth the short climb up a moderately sloped footpath to the exposed rock outcrop where you will discover one of the most spectacular views of south Dublin and north Wicklow. Other features to be found in and around the woods are a Dolmen, the site of a Rath and a memorial to Nathaniel Alcock (1819 - 1904) erected by his daughters in 1914. To find this memorial continue on past the car park to the junction of Murphys Lane and Ballyman Lane. At the junction there is an ESB pole. Enter the woods at this point and follow the path up the hill for approx 40m. There you will find a stone plaque embedded in a large rock with the inscription ~ To the Memory of One who Worshipped Here, Doctor Nathaniel Alcock Died April 4 1904 in His 85th Year. A Wise Man is Never so busy as in the Solitary Contemplation of God And the Worship of Nature ~ Seneca. Erected by his Two Friends
