Spectacular glimpse of Carrick Island

Ferdinand Lucino

Dublin 15, Ireland

Artist's Description

The walk to and from the bridge is quite pretty, with lush green hills, lots of cows on one side, and the dramatic limestone cliffs on the other. On clear days, you can easily see across the North Channel to Scotland. It should be noted that Larrybane headland was once much more prominent, and a fort dating to approximately 800 A.D. once stood atop it. Unfortunately, due to limestone demand, much of the head was quarried and blasted, thus removing a sizeable chunk of land – as well as destroying the fort. The views are still stunning, however, and you can take a walk down to some of the quarry caves if you like.
