Lough Henney near Boardmills
An inter-drumlin lake, to the south of Boardmills, seen from the Bressagh Road J3558 : The Bressagh Road near Boardmills (2). The area was wooded (in common with many parts of Ulster) until the 17th century when the woods were cleared – partly for building materials needed to accommodate the influx of Scottish settlers and partly (it is said) to deprive those “on the run” (after the war of 1641/42) of hiding places. The black object is a ski-jump ramp.
Drumlin country



In simple (non-technical) words, drumlins are rounded hills, usually of stones and clays deposited by glaciers during the ice age. They form the “basket of eggs” landscape found in parts of Cos Down and Armagh.
