February 5th - Forth Mountain Wexford - Marian Shrine (mass rock)

SEPA's third Paintout for 2012, brings us to Mass Rock (or Marien Shrine), Forth Mountain. We are very lucky to have such an expanse of wilderness so close to Wexford Town. There are plenty of trails, and vantage points throughout the area. This Sunday however, we are selecting this one particular spot to explore.

What was it like?

A day when Ireland's Rugby team were playing France, we had a small turnout today. Our Sundays seem to be covered in a blanket of grey cloud lately, but at least it was relatively warm. Worth another visit at a later date, there are pathways to explore which lead through woodland to more panoramic views, but you'd need to be prepared with a light load or  trolley for your gear. 

Marie-Christine is shown here painting on her new easel!
