Artist's Description

Mamore Gap was once the sole gateway between Buncrana and Urris. This steep meandering road is sheltered 700 feet on either side by the hill of Mamore on the east and on the west the hill of Craogh Carragh. To the north east Raghtin More stands 1657 feet in the distance. These hills are only a small feature of glacier deposits and formations which are abundant in this area and other local imprints of the Ice Age date back to 15000 BC.
On the crest of Mamore Gap a number of holy relics are to be found. A holy well devoted to St Eigne and a small alter of statues are the centre point on the annual mass held here every August 15th in commemoration of the Pagan Times when locals had to practice their religion in secret to be protected from persecution.
Descending from Mamore Gap offers panoramic views whether they be of the hills on one side or of the Atlantic Ocean on the other. Either way the sightseer will have to travel a considerable distance to see such magnificent views as these.
Donegal is the most northerly of the Irish Counties and a place of outstanding beauty.
Many tourists tend not to come this far north when visiting Ireland and they are missing out on what would be a wonderful experience.
I am lucky, I can get into my car and be in this world apart in less than 30 minutes.
