Description

Excerpt from A Brief Account of the Rise and Progress of the Change in Religious Opinion: Now Taking Place in Dingle, and the West of the County of Kerry, Ireland

Fifteen years since, the writer of these pages first visited Dingle, as a tourist; the majestic scenery of this neighbourhood attracted some adventurous spirits even then, to explore its wilds. The roads had he come nearly impassable for any conveyance better than a car or Irish dray.

The post was conveyed by foot-carriers; one man starting from Tralee, and the other from Dingle, and trotting at a pace which is very commonly practised by activeboys in Ireland, of between four and five English miles an hour; they met half way, by apass over the mountain, exchanged bags, and each trotted back to their respective towns, having accomplished a dis tance of fifteen English miles forward, and the same back; they did this every day, winter and summer, for which they received the pittance of seven shillings per week. I give this as an instance of the extreme backwardness of this spot, so lately as the year 1830. In this year, however, improvement commenced; a good road was carried along both sides of the range of mountains, - as may be seen in the map, - that on the northern side passing over the Conner, and open ing up a truly romantic and beautiful country.
