Last year I had to cancel my visit to Kilkenny twice due to deaths in the family and this year I cancelled because of Covid-19. I am hoping that I might be able to visit in September or October but I doubt that I will be able to visit until May of 2021.
On day two of my visit to Kilkenny in 2018 I walked more than twenty miles over three sessions and I was exhausted because the weather was very hot even though the sky was overcast. At the end of the day my feet were in a very poor condition.
I asked a local farmer how long Bishopsmeadows walk was and he responded by saying six fields. Having seen some really large fields on my way to Kilkenny by train I was afraid that this could be six miles but I assumed that it would be no more than two miles assuming about four fields per mile. I later discovered that it is 2.6km but of course the return journey was also the same distance [I always forget about the return journey].
I came across some homeless people in a heavily wooded area which was a bit bleak.
