Oughaval, Co. Laois (Queen’s Co.) Photographs

I say Ballylinan to Oughaval *but* this also includes some shots taken along the road and at one point when I tried to show that the road was surrounded by hills (which was not a successful photograph)

I wanted to show you the hills and the beauty that is there.  I got some of it but personally I don’t think it gives you the full impression.

Below, you’ll see photos which are named Ballylinan to Oughaval and around Oughaval.  By around I mean the land around, the way it seems to be farmed and the look of it.  Yes, my dogs are in some of the photos the area was just so nice and I didn’t want to delete those shots.  Generally speaking there is a dog or two with me when I am out.

The titles on the photos here may confuse you because they are not placed in the times they were taken and have been sorted according to my titles.

1. Ballylinan to Oughaval are shots taken as I went from one place to the other

2. Around Oughaval were taken just after we got out of the car and are photos of the locality.

3. Oughaval 1 & 2 are the first Oughaval woods shots I took and after that it’s just shots of the woods as we walked along.

The Mass Rock in Oughaval, it was the first time I have ever seen a Mass Rock and because it is unusual I have created a separate page for that because people who do not come from this area of Ireland will still be interested in looking at it.
