An Irish Waterfall

Like most things in Ireland, our waterfalls are not the tallest, most powerful or biggest in Europe or the world but they are certainly very characterful.

Often hidden on seacliffs or miles away from the nearest road, waterfalls in Ireland take two forms. There are the famous and not famous.

The famous waterfalls are Torc in County Kerry, Glenarriff in County Antrim, Powerscourt in County Wicklow and Aasleagh Falls on the border of County Mayo and County Galway. Glencar Waterfall in County Leitrim is the one made famous by W.B. Yeats. All the rest are the not-so famous waterfalls.

Northern Ireland's Antrim Coast

Waves crashing into the dark rocks of the Antrim Coast in Northern Ireland

A recent commission took me back to the spectacular Antrim Coast of Northern Ireland. It would be easy to divide the coast of Co. Antrim into two sections, the Causeway Coast running east-west along the top of Northern Ireland and the Antrim or Glens Coast running north-south along the east of the island.

Panoramic Ireland run photo tours in the Glens of Antrim and along the Causeway Coast.

Snow in the Mountains of the west of Ireland

The West of Ireland - Irish Stream and Mountains

Snow in the mountains above a stream in Co. Mayo, west of Ireland

The winter in Ireland is generally mild, the weather systems coming in off the Atlantic usually bring changeable, warm conditions. On occasions and in recent years there have been prolonged cold spells with snow turning to ice and lasting for weeks at a time and roads looking like in this picture.

But usually snow will only last for a few days at most outside of the mountains. Here in the west of Ireland, Co. Mayo in this case, there were conditions bringing in 160km/h winds and driven rain yet inland in Co. Mayo's mountains it was relatively calm and precipitation was falling as snow.

The Ancient Woodland

Ancient Irish Woodland

I have written about ancient woodland in Ireland woodland before. In certain parts of Ireland the remnants of ancient woodland survive, here is one such place nestled high in the mountains inaccessible from the demands of the wood cutter.
