Tuesday Summertime Meets – Lovers Leap

June 19 @ 5:30 pm - 10:00 pm

Lovers Leap in Enniskerry is the venue for this Tuesday’s IMC summertime meet and Cearbhall Daley is our host for the evening.

‘Once upon a time a distraught young couple came here, fleeing from the wrath of a domineering and avaricious Papa. She was the only child of a wealthy merchant, he was a handsome but impoverished stable-lad in her father’s employment, and they were deeply in love. But it was a love that was forbidden, a love that they could never share in this life. So they came here to end it all and be together forever in the hereafter. Fondly embracing, they bade a tearful adieu to this cruel world, then, hand in hand, they ran to the cliff-edge and jumped.’

Excerpt from an article by Gerry Moss who was instrumental in developing the crag.
