The Wicklow Way: from Marlay to Glenmalure

Michael Fewer’s first book is a walking guide intended for ordinary walkers and families who wished to enjoy to the full the flora, fauna and historical associations of the Wicklow Way, Ireland’s first Waymarked walking route. He includes alternative routes and circuits that allow walkers to complete loops rather than having to retrace their steps, similar to Failte Ireland’s Loop Walks of today.
