About: A whistle-stop tour around West Wicklow and some neighbouring places. The booklet can only give a flavour of what the area is like, but helps to whet the appetite to delve deeper into local history and heritage. The booklet could be seen as an effort to tempt Dubliners to forget the eastern side of the county and to explore the unspoilt countryside in the west.
