The Gap of Dunloe, Co Kerry

The Gap of Dunloe, Co Kerry - Munster's Wild Landscape
From "The Way That I Went" by Robert Lloyd Praeger, published in 1937:

The Gap of Dunloe, which cuts the Reeks off from their natural continuation on the north, is a deep Glacial overflow channel, formed by a torrent when the ice lay piled high on the lower grounds around that this was the easiest point of escape for the marginal streams. But one can scarcely view it in peace on account of the cloud of human gadflies which infests it, attracted thither by the stream of tourists passing through it on Killarney's favourite lake and mountain excursion.

Off-season the Gap is a wild and remote pass though the Purple Mountains and Macgillycuddy's Reeks into the Black Valley beyond and is well worth traversing slowly and "in peace"!
