This stunning drone video of the Blessington Lakes was shot before the recent wild weather.

The footage was taken as part of an attempt to showcase the ‘Blessington Greenway’ – a 6.5km trail linking the town of Blessington with the Palladian mansion of Russborough House.

Largely a community based project, efforts are focusing now on getting support to complete the planned 50 km loop along the shores and forests adjacent to Blessington Lakes.
