- Deer are very plentiful around here and the big wood near Dundrum, parish Ballintemple, Kilnamanagh Lower, is sometimes called the Deer Forest. There is hardly a time you go into the wood that you would not see a herd of deer roving round. In spite of that they are very hard to get near to shoot them.They resemble the bark of the trees in colour and they are off like the wind at slightest sound.
Once or twice every year there is a deer shoot but they hardly ever get more than three or four. They mostly eat a very coarse grass which grows plentifully in the wood called "deer-grass" and very often they do a great deal of damage by eating turnips and cabbage in the gardens and fields next the woods.
At this time of year the deer are very cross and it is safer not to go too near them but at other times they are perfectly harmless. The deer in the Dundrum wood are not a very big kind: they are the small common variety but occasionally you would see a big buck with branching horns.Tras-scríofa ag duine dár meitheal tras-scríbhneoirí deonacha.
