The pictures below were taken in August 2006 during a recent trip to Ireland. The first five pictures were taken in the village of Upperchurch itself. The next three were taken in Gleninchnaveigh (Glown), a few km west of the village. In the third row, the first two were taken from a hill top in Knockcurraghbola Commons which is a townland that borders Glown on the south. The last five pictures were taken in Glown, looking east, on the west road out of Upperchurch. In several of them you can see the village in the background.
