Killaclohane or Coill an Clocháin in Irish can be translated to mean ‘Church of the strong ford’. The religious theme plays through today with the mass rock in the middle of these woods being one of the main features of the site. Mass would have been celebrated here during Penal times & indeed is celebrated here each year during October. The wood is compact with very gentle gradients that make for very pleasant walks. On a clear day you can admire the views of the Slieve Mish mountains to the North West. Enjoy.

East of the N70 between Castlemaine and Milltown in Co. Kerry.
