The feeling you get when reading it, is that you want to get out to those woods immediately and walk down their forest tracks.’ – Gay Byrne, RTE Lyric FM

Stopping by Woods is a fascinating guide to 340 forests and woodlands open to the public throughout Ireland. Donal Magner writes with a rare insight about forests he has worked in and visited over the years as a forester and journalist.
