Just to orientate us, this photo shows Glen from the top of the Connor Pass. At one side of the Connor Pass is Dingle and the other side is the Owenmore Valley , Cloghane and Brandon. Connor Pass is high on every visitor's itinerary but most people travel on through Cloghane, bypassing this splendid landscape. At the bottom of Connor Pass are signs for Dingle and Brandon. Follow the Brandon signs and in turn the sign for Cloghane. As you drive into Cloghane there is a left turn just where the houses begin. Take this left turn, drive two miles and you are in Glen. You will cross over two bridges and a right turn on the second one will bring you up a track to a farmer's house. I read this description in a book earlier today and was very amused becasue the 'track' is what we call the Boreen ( Irish word for small road) up to my grandmother's house and their neigbour on the other side of the river

The house you can just barely see to the left of the photo has a cluster of trees nearby. Behind these trees is my mother's family home, now occupied by one of her nephews. Up in the mountain is Lough Cruite, one of two lakes on their land.The second photo shows Cloghane's position on the sea at the foot of the mountains and the third gives a close-up look a the rocky terrain, climbing down from Connor Pass
