Inis Oirr splashy washy

By Tooth
the lighthouse on Inis Oirr from the rocks near Doolin pier, on a pretty normal rough-sea kind of day. Taken at the end of the Doolin meet.

Thanks for looking, all comments and critique welcome as always

A cracking image, with lots of energy and movement. I've done some wonderful photography at this very spot, it was the waves and the sunset that really made the shot; Inis Oirr is Craggy Island in Father Ted isn't it? I've been there too!

So have we Andrew! Grin

I can't believe this has only had 7 votes Stephen. It's a really lovely image.

Sigh... miss the place!
Cheers, Goggz

Quote: Inis Oirr is Craggy Island in Father Ted isn't it?

well, Andrew, yes and no...the series was shot in various places, the manin island shots were on Inis Mor (or maybe Inis Meain) - they have a Father Ted festival there every year.

The shipwreck you see in the opening credits is on Inis Oirr though.

And the father Ted house is near Callan in the middle of the burren on the Clare mainland

We're all agreed it's a very special place. Thanks for enjoying
