For this last section of the Way, I found a place to park the car just before the route turns off into the rural lane. I then walked back to the Granamore Bridge, completed the walk and returned to my car along the Hollywood – Wicklow Gap Road.

But first the hill has to be negotiated before the easier route. Finally the lane.

Descending to lower ground the route follows the the right side of a T junction and leaves this new lane at a sharp left turn continuing straight into farmland.

The route goes through a gap between two hills and arrives at Hollywood.

We live in a world that is shaped by the past.

Not just the physical word but also the world of people.
And the world of ideas.
In other words we inherit more then our genes from our ancestors. To understand our present we must understand our past
Up unto the 17th Century the prevalent idea about the world was that God had created it and was in control of it. Then a world-view called Modernism took over the lead position. It's premise was Naturalism or Materialism that is there was nothing but the material universe and there was nothing above the natural. Everything can be explained by the natural laws obtained by observation and experiment.

In the past 100 years there has been an accelerating change towards a Post- modernist position which renounces the arrogant positions of the past and maintains that truth is un-knowable. The definition of tolerance has changed from accepting people with different views from yourself to accepting all views as equal.
