Misty Morning on the Kings river…

The Kings River (Irish: Abhainn Rí), flows through South Tipperary and County Kilkenny. It is a tributary of the River Nore.

It has its source in the Slieveardagh Hills in South Tipperary.It has many tributaries of its own.There are three main tributaries that are not named but are the original sources.One started as a spring in the townsland of Ballyphilip.The two remaining tributaries rise in the townsland of Gurteen. It flows southeast from the hills and crosses into County Kilkenny. It is joined by the Munster River before passing through the town of Callan. It continues eastwards from Callan, past Kells and joins the River Nore west of Thomastown.

Last one for today…

I am about to start re-designing my web site, I need to start thinking about how to rebuild this and my business ideas, who knows what to do at the moment, but here goes anyway!!

I took these shots on a walk around Knockbutton, County Kilkenny, early one Saturday Morning.

I feel that the old Family cottages of County Kilkenny are one of the county’s most striking historic features.

Misty Morning

In the misty morning
before the sun begins to rise
the world seems at peace with itself
right before our eyes.
No raised voices
to spoil our waking day,
just a sheltered silence
and the world seems
a million miles away.
In the misty morning
before the sun begins to rise.

David Harris

That Misty Monday feeling, you know you have to get going but that track looks really misty on a Monday morning!

So a poem then !
