Leaving Annascaul at 10:00 we drive to Tralee and meet up with more of our members at old Lidl car park on the Castlemaine road.  We then drive through the Stacks Mountains turning left or North at Reenagowan cross roads and park a little farther on at the Four Elms bar.  Starting here we walk North on the surfaced road for a few minutes till we come to the entrance to Lyre forest. This forest walk is very well laid out and provided with many information boards and seats all along the riverbank.  After a short downhill section we cross the Smearlagh River by the footbridge and visit the church situated there.  We then follow the surfaced road to Lyre village. After the village we again go off road and follow the Smearlagh river down to the church and then to our cars at the Four Elms.
