"Pettigo. (July 23, 1824). A country road leads in this direction a mile: after leaving which we passed over the mountains following a path, which the number of devotees who visit the Island, had marked too distinctly to be mistaken. After walking for what appeared to us a very ling time over the heath-covered mountains exposed to a burning sun, without a breeze of air to refresh us tough on so high a situation, we at length got a sight of Lough Derg and its islands: and soon afterwards arrived at the lonely house of the boatman, who ferries the votaries over to their devotional exercises. A situation more solitary and bleak can scarcely be conceived than that which has been chosen for this great religious station."
