Hi Trail_Kilkenny. My name is Barry, alias thedogdosingstrip. In 1993, while visiting my cousin in Kilkenny ( She and her husband own/run Kytlers Inn) I purchased a mountain-bike for the purpose of cycling about Ireland. Before I left Kilkenny I spent the week prior cycling around the area you have mentioned in your guide. Viewing your guide has brought back so many very-fond memories of the very-beautiful countryside that surrounds Kilkenny. So much so that I was reluctant to leave.
I have decided to connect with you so I can keep up-to-date with your group and your trips/guides.
Keep up the great work.
