I achieved this section of the route by first starting off from Crone Woods car park and walking approximately half way and then starting off again from Ballinastoe Woods car park on the Sally Gap Road walk to where I previously finished.

Crone Woods to Djouce

This is a very strenuous walk of about 3 to 4 hours and a climb of 460 metres to the ridge at Djouce Mountain. This climb does not include the ups and downs along the way - add another 100 metres to be safe.

 The shrill cry, the boobing white tail, the inconsiderate deer leaps away                                    before I can get my camera out.

After reaching the ridge the route takes you steeply down again to cross the Dargle River at the top of Powerscourt Waterfall.

             If only sweet was fat I be looking like a greyhound long be fore now.

Promise of the re-establishment of God's Kingdom - Genesis chapter 3              
In the confrontation between God and the parties involved in the rebellion, God declares this promise. He says to the serpent “I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will crush your head, and you will strike his heel.”
 Here in God's statement there is a promise of a remedy for the awful situation that has resulted. From our humanity God will raise up a CHAMPION who in deadly conflict will defeat our enemy and undo the damage of our rebellion and restore God's Kingdom upon this Earth, but in the conflict he himself will also a receive a mortal wound.

The explanation, development and final fulfilment of this promise is the major theme of the Bible.

God's reaction to rebellious Adam and Eve (and his continual relationship with mankind ) reveals the characteristic of God to be gracious (kindness that is not deserved) and merciful (kindness given when the opposite is deserved).
