River Barrow

October 31st, 2014 | Uncategorized

It’s crazy how busy I have been this month with classes, practices, games for three different leagues and coaching numerous teams. I have got into an organized routine of what I need to do each week. With such a crazy schedule, time management is very important. Besides playing three games each week, training, classes, and coaching, it is important to take some time for yourself and relax.


So when I do get just a few hours to relax, I go to my favorite places in Carlow, the River Barrow which is the second longest river flowing from the Slieve Bloom Mountains to the sea. On nice days I’ll go down by the town park and walk along the Barrow way walking route. There’s a lovely bridge that you can cross to get across to the park and has over twelve acres of open space and a number of paved walks. The series of tiered earthen embankments are configured as a counterpoint to the nearby Carlow Castle and thus symbolising the towns Norman heritage. I really enjoy the view, people rowing up and down the river, fishing and most importantly the park is just an excellent place to relax. So when I do have some free time to relax on a nice day you will find me there!
