Cabinteely Park

Scruffy took his family to Cabinteely Park for the day. It’s a lovely place teeming with wildflowers and a peaceful pond.

There are several paths and fields to explore.

There is even a dog park, which Chloe enjoyed immensely. But Scruffy disgraced himself so we had to leave.

Bright red poppies and daisies seem to grow wild here. The sun was so bright that many of the iphone pictures were fuzzy – no, it wasn’t the photographer!

Here and there you will find metallic mosaic flower sculptures nestled within the foliage.

Alongside of one of the paths is a large plaque commemorating the Irish declaration of independence from England.

Afterward, the people stopped for coffee at their favorite haunt, the Urbun Café in Cabinteely Village.
