About Molly Quirk's Glen

A narrow, wooded glen along the Groudle River. The name comes from the legend of Molly Quirk, who was believed to have been robbed and murdered in the glen. There is however no proof of this tale. Bibaloe walk, a stream side pathway, connects to this glen. As does Groudle Glen, which is just the other side of the passageway under the main road.

Parts of this glen were generously donated by Harvey Briggs of Ballakilmartin Farm.
