A Little Corner Of Ireland For St Patrick's Day by 


I took this image last summer in the Irish speaking region of West Donegal, a place of haunting beauty.
Gweedore is the commonly used anglicisation of Gaoth Dobhair, the official name of an Irish-speaking parish located on the Atlantic coast of County Donegal, Ireland. Gweedore stretches some 16 miles from Meenaclady in the north to Crolly in the south and around 9 miles from Dunlewey in the east to Magheraclogher in the west, and is Europe’s most densely populated rural area. It is the largest Irish-speaking parish in Ireland with a population of around 4,065, and is also the home of the northwest regional studios of the Irish-language radio service RTÉ Raidió na Gaeltachta, as well as an external campus of National University of Ireland, Galway. Gweedore consists of villages Bunbeg, Derrybeg, Dunlewey, Crolly and Brinalack, and it sits in the shade of Donegal’s highest peak Mount Errigal.
Gweedore is known for being a cradle of Irish culture, with old Irish customs, traditional music, theatre, Gaelic games and the Irish language playing a central and pivotal role in the lives of the local people. This, along with its scenery and many beaches, has made the area a popular tourist destination, especially with visitors from Northern Ireland. Gweedore lies between Cloughaneely and the Rosses, collectively known locally as the three parishes, together they form a social and cultural region distinct from the rest of the county, with Gweedore serving as the main centre for socialising and industry.
If you happen to be Irish and feeling a little nostalgic, I hope this will add to your day.
