Phoenix Park

Cormorant Fishing, Furry Glen, Phoenix Park

The Furry Glen was my favorite place to visit in Phoenix Park- small wonder the park was named after it according to one of my travel books. The name comes from the Gaelic fionne usice or "clear water" referring to the spring in the Furry Glen.

Local fisherman said there was a contract on the cormorant for a tenner

I was fascinated by the Jackdaw and the Hooded Crow and kept getting the Raven and the Rook mixed up without referring to my book.
