Artist's Description

I captured this man standing in contemplative mood on the seashore at Mill Bay on Inch Island, Donegal.
It turned out that he suffered from depression and severe panic attacks. He visited the island quite often and found that he always felt calmer and more peaceful when he left.
It is said that there are lay lines running across Inch Island and from my own experience of going there in troubled times, I have no doubt that this is true.
Even in the depths of winter it is a very spiritual place to visit.
Inch Island is connected to the mainland by a narrow causeway and is largely fertile on it’s eastern side while its western side has steep mountain sides and a coastline punctuated by little harbours and a few sandy beaches. This is an area of outstanding natural beauty and is largely undiscovered as a holiday destination within Donegal. A 20 min. drive southwards takes you to the historic City of Derry while Inishowen’s main town, Buncrana, is a 15 min. drive to the north. There a few very good restaurants in the village of Fahan and a fabulous sandy beach.
A birdwatcher’s paradise.
Inch Island, a small island connected to the mainland, in Lough Swilly, is home to an important population of migratory birds and wintering waterfowl. Three species, Whooper Swan, Greenland White-fronted Goose and Greylag Goose, occur in numbers of international importance. This is the area where the swans make their Irish landfall in autumn on their return from breeding grounds in Iceland and there are some excellent vantage points from which to view these majestic birds.

The hugely historic Inch Castle which dates back to the 15th Century and is connected with the flight of the Earls, can also be explored on the island. There’s a fine sandy beach on the south western shore and with some scenic drives, Inch Island makes a great place for a relaxed outing.
