Being from Inishowen you would think I would recognise this landmark.
I didn’t and have never visited it.
As soon as my college assignments are finished I intend going straight to it, of course as long as it isn’t raining.
But it NEVER rains in Ireland. The proof is in the photo 😉
Well worth a visit.
Did you know that the survey of Ireland started from Derry in the 1800’s.
Find out how it was done back then by visiting the tower Museum.
Its amazing the history on our doorstep if we care to take the time to search it out. Many times I have visited Derry and never thought to visit this museum.
It was only when an exchange student stayed with us that we looked for touristy/historical things to do that we visited this museum.
The Trinidad Valencera sank here. One of the Spanish Armada ships.
Some of the locals are dark skinned and are genetically linked to Spanish Ancestry!
Of those that were not taken in by the locals they were murdered having been tricked into safe passage if they laid down their arms.
Some of the ships cannons are on Display in the Tower Museum in Derry. Well worth a visit. More on it later.
Heading south now, it always feels so after Malin Head and technically you can go south into the Foyle estuary, but it is not a pretty sight. That’s my opinion only and you would never get me swimming there anyway.
Oh, and the English are laying claim to the entire estuary thus preventing a sewage treatment plant being built on the Irish side. How original is that!

En route to Culdaff this is a small pier with a pebbly beach. Small and off the beaten track there are plenty of these small quiet beaches along the peninsula
