This walk brings us from the small town of Shankill on the sea front in South Dublin to the hills very close-by. The walk takes in many different terrains along its way from small lane-ways to forest trails and open hill tops. The walk is very easy and generally flat with some gradual inclines towards the summit of Kathy Gallagher's hill. We will pass by very fashionable houses past the old castle of Shankill and onto an old monastery lane-way of St Michael. This is one of Ireland's earliest christian sites with the unique tomb stones of Vikings who once settled in this area. After Rathmichael we will make our way through some woodland leading to a wonderful summit offering excellent views across Dublin city and Bay. Then we will visit an old lead mine chimney in this area before making our way back another way. Once all back we can visit Brady's Pub for a drink and catch up.
