It is related that one day they came upon Majnun sifting the dust, and his tears flowing down. They said, "What doest thou?" He said, "I seek for Layli." They cried, "Alas for thee! Layli is of pure spirit, and thou seekest her in the dust!" He said, "I seek her everywhere; haply somewhere I shall find her."

from mountain to valley
Probably the search for Layli is a journey which lasts a lifetime and once set on the search one should not anticipate a return.
However, on Saturday 10th July we are going to take the wandering a bit further than usual as we will head off without knowing where we are going. We know where we will meet - at the upper car park for Liffey Falls at 12 noon. But then comes the decision. If it has snowed on the plateau we will continue upwards to the lakes because many are convinced Layli could not resist a snowball fight (and some of us have never seen snow). But if it, disappointingly, is a clear warm day we will satisfy ourselves with the mighty Liffey Falls.
Liffey Falls and the different access access routes are described here
Please bring some picnic food, warm clothing (it is the middle of winter), and a toleration for, or preferably a willingness to join in some devotions.
If you need a lift, can offer a lift, or are doubtful of the directions and would like to follow someone please contact me,
