Snow in the Glendasan Valley

Glendasan Valley

Pictured is the Glendasan Valley in winter after a snowfall. The valley lies to the north of the Glendalough Valley between Camaderry and Brockagh Mountains. The Glendasan River flows down this glaciated valley. It meets the Glenealo River flowing from the Glendalough Valley. At the point where the two rivers meet is where the remains of St. Kevin's 'Monastic City' are to be found. Historically, pilgrims travelled through Glendasan Valley on the mountain route from the west to the monastic site. The remains of a miners' village can be visited further up the valley on the way to the Wicklow Gap mountain pass.
