Tullynagee

Today’s townland is Tullynagee in County Down.  I haven’t travelled far from my last post, as Tullynagee is just to the north of Sunday’s townland of Kilmood and Ballybunden, between Ballygowan and Lisbane.

The Tullynagee Road runs through the townland, and then continues north into Ballygraffan townland.

I stopped on Lisbarnet Road to photograph Tullynagee Lough.
