John B Keane who spent the summers of his youth in Lyreacrompane referred to the Stacks Mountains as “Too small to be called mountains and too big to be called hills”.
John B also proclaimed; “I fell immediately in love with this strange and wonderful countryside, with the character, colour and language of its people and with its numerous dancing streams. The unbounded freedom of hills and glens amount to sheer paradise. The Stacks Mountains have a magic all of their own where the green pastures and meadows merge into boglands. The dominating colour is brown but ever and always it is a brown that is warm and comforting”.
The image of the Lyreacrompane district painted by John B has changed somewhat over the years as forestry brings a greener tinge to the colours and emigration and migration changes the character of a place. However, for whatever reason and for many reasons, Lyreacrompane continues to hold its place in the world and has much to show to that world.
To show off Lyreacrompane to the world is the task of this website.

Some of the hidden beauty to be found in
Lyreacrompane are its mountain streams which all too often are
overgrown with saplings and briers. These lovely scenes could be
viewed by native and visitor if cleared for a distance of
30 yards on each side of the many bridges that straddle them.
