I know a great place to have a picnic, said Kevin. We were heading to Slieve Gullion for a walk and this place happened to be on the way. Castle Roche was just amazing - a massive, ruined Norman castle built on a high rocky outcrop with views over the most beautiful drumlin landscape. We picnic-ed in the interior and the boys whooped and ran about and declared it 'the best castle ever'. It certainly was somewhere The Famous Five would have had an adventure and we wondered who would be brave enough to camp there...Then it was on to Slieve Gullion for a walk in the November sun until it began to turn chilly and we headed for home.
