After spending a few days way up in the North of Ireland I came back from Donegal yesterday, tired but with lots of lovely memories and a camera filled with photos.
I stayed in a town called Cardonagh, close to the most northerly point of Ireland, on the Inishowen peninsula . Donegal is stunningly beautiful, very green and due to it’s isolation to the rest of the Republic of Ireland it has a very distinct cultural identity. As the people of Donegal say themselves: “Up here it’s different”.
As always in Ireland the weather was wet, sunny, windy, stormy, hot and humid one after the other and at times all rolled up into one changeable day. But when you are in good company and have lots to see the weather becomes secondary.
On Monday my friend and I went to the Donagh Famine Village and Carrickabraghy Castle (also known as the Castles), right up at the north Atlantic coast.Here are a few of the many photos I took:
