From time to time, we were greeted by a pair of lambs. The only people we met was a belgian couple we had already met several days before.
After a rather fast walk of about 4,5 hours, we arrived in Sneem, a small town. Sneem is knows for the visits of General De Gaulle, the former french President. There is a commemoration monument at one of the main places.
