About
For Pól’s second walk he meets his second guide Michael Desmond. They walk parts of two looped walks in the Nire Valley, following the trail known as The Gap Walk and then join a second and longer loop known as the Coumduala Loop. This section of the Coumduala Loop will bring them uphill and onto part of the Knockanaffrin Ridge from where they will get a wonderful view of the Nire Valley.
