Gortin, Sunday 6 October
 ===================
 
 


 
On the way up North we stopped at Bellingham Castle, in the town of Castlebellingham. The 'castle' was owned by Marian's uncle until quite recently and this is where we had our Irish wedding reception in 1980. 






 

 
Tuesday 8 October      
=============

The Sperrin mountains have been promoted to an area of outstanding natural beauty, and  deservedly so. They offer some excellent walking, cycling and great hospitality. 
We were walking Barnes Gap when a passing motorist stopped and inquired if we had ailments, aches or pains. He pointed to a nearby spring and said that he had been strimming the area recently when a man in a wheelchair pushed past to the spring. The man said 3 `Hail Marys` and 4 `Our Fathers` and was then able to walk back unaided. A miracle!
