“ There is not in the wide world a valley so sweet
As the vale in whose bosom the bright waters meet;
Oh! the last rays of feeling and life must depart,
Ere the bloom of that valley shall fade from my heart.”

T. Moore.

" It is certainly a great advantage, that which is possessed by
the inhabitants of Dublin of being able, during a three days'
tour, to see so sweet an union of the beautiful and the pic-
turesque as many parts of Wicklow present, and even to form
a conception of the still higher attractions of mountain scenery.
It is true every thing here is en petit, but it is a beautiful
minuteness.”Inglis.

“ Immediately after driving through the town of Arklow,
and turning sharply to the westward, the road took us sud-
denly to the commencement of a beautiful valley, of which the
scenery was at once changed and varied as rapidly as one sees
in a pantomime. This was the Vale of Avoca, a spot one has
heard much of, and a lovely one it unquestionably is.”-
Barrow.
