Mullinasole, County Donegal on Canvas

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.
