This short amateur film sees two of Desmond Egan’s daughters taking a stroll along a country lane in Wicklow as we see the Sugar Loaf Mountain towering in the background. The Sugar Loaf is located between Delgany and Kilmacanogue. At only 501 meters high, its volcanic appearance and isolation from other hills make it appear much taller than it is.

Desmond Egan was a skilled amateur filmmaker with a keen eye for detail. A wine merchant by trade, he lived with his wife and 4 daughters in Glenageary Co. Dublin. His films were shot between the 1937 and 1943. To see more from the Desmond Egan collection click
