I spent a weekend in Donegal a couple of months ago and one of the locations I visited was the beautiful Boyeeghter Bay, situated on the northwest corner of Melmore Head on the Rosguill peninsula, it got its name from the Irish translation, Bá Íochtair meaning Lower Bay. But the beach, known locally as (the enticing!) Murder Hole beach, may have got its name from legend. When Fionn mac Cumhaill killed Goll Mac Morna in revenge for killing his father, it was said to have taken place at a rock, Carraic Ghoill, lying off the townland of Dooey. This gave the name to the entire headland, Headland of Goll or Rossgoill.
I have already published an image of this gorgeous sunset a couple of months ago, but I have quite a few I would like to share. Today is a long exposure taking in the full beach, enclosed as it is by rocks. I’m sure you’ll agree this is a very different image than the one I shared a while ago, though they are only 30 minutes apart.
