This is a shot I took of Mullinasole, County Donegal.
Mullinasole, Mullan na Saile, ie Hilltop of Salt Water, is a centuries old fishing village. It was a hamlet of twenty homesteads until it was devastated in the storm of 6th November 1831. In the wake of the storm twelve homes, the salt pans and the boats lay scattered and destroyed.
It is situated on the tidal estuary of the river Murvagh. At low water, the course of the Murvagh River is clearly seen meandering through the sloblands to enter the sea at the Hassans between Bell’s Isle and Rooney’s Island. The hamlet itself is sheltered by Murvagh Promonontory on the west, Mullinasole Hill on the south and the Rossilly Hills on the east.
This is a shot I took the Sacred Heart, Mountcharles, County Donegal.
On the hill down to the pier and beaches in Mountcharles sits the Roman Catholic Church of the Sacred Heart overlooking Donegal Bay and across to the distinctive mountain profile of Benbulben in County Sligo.
In the grounds there are two Marian Shrines, one built in 1954 and the newer one to commemorate the Marian Year in 1988.
This is a shot I took of St.Patrick Chapel in my home town of Donegal Town.
This Catholic church is also known as the Church of the Four Masters. It was built in the 1930's, although the style appears much older.
It is well-built using good quality granite from nearby Barnesmore with high-quality carved and crisp Mountcharles sandstone detailing throughout, particularly to the elaborate doorcases that are testament to the skill of the masons involved. This carefully cut and carved stone detailing is unusual in a twentieth-century building, even a high-status one such as a church. It was named in honour of the four monks (Michael O'Clery, Peregrine O'Clery, Peregrine Duigan and Fearfeasa O'Mulconry) from the Franciscan friary in Donegal Town that compiled the Annals of the Four Masters in the 1630s.
This is a shot I took of the Church of St. Agatha, Clar, Donegal Town, County Donegal. It was built in 1871
