If you go down to the woods today; a sylvan Trinity Knot in Co. Sligo

I love this piece of woodland art from Co. Sligo. Inspired by ancient Irish designs, Jim McCabe and his family planted this sylvan Trinity Knot in the 1980s. It is located on the slopes of Tomór mountain and can be seen from the nearby N16 Sligo to Manorhamilton road. The design is best viewed in the autumn when the Japanese Larch trees change colour and contrast with the surrounding Sitka Spruce forest. According to his family, Jim privately funded and planted the Trinity Knot for the enjoyment of all. I for one, am very glad he did.

    Thanks for sharing this info. I’ve seen this Trinity Knot a few times in Sligo and have long wondered who planted those trees. It’s quite impressive to see. Here is a May 2012 shot of it.
