Photographer's Note

during the 18th century, the coast along newcastle was notorious for smuggling. brandy, wine, tobacco, tea and silk entered the country and were carried over the mournes to hilltown along a path which became known as the brandy pad.

today it is a popular walking route, as the brandy pad still crosses the mournes and extends from the coast at bloody bridge to the hare’s gap pass on the northern rim of the mournes.

this picture was taken on the brandy pad looking along the ben crom valley. the ben crom reservoir is visible in the distance with the mountains of slieve lamagan and slieve binnian on the left, and ben crom and slieve bearnagh to the right.
