Photographer's Note

This is the Poisoned Glen in Ireland's most northern county, Donegal. The glen was originally called Heavenly Glen by the Irish, but due to a miss-spelling by the English cartographer, it was erroneously re-named Poisoned Glen. The Irish word for "heavenly" is "neamh" and for "poisoned" it is "neimhe", The Poisoned Glen lies at the foot of Donegal's tallest mountain Errigal

This is one of the most beautiful and untouched areas of Donegal and certainly worth a visit. There are two songs I'd suggest as a soundtrack, depending on your taste in music. The first song is by Phil Coulter and sung by Sinead O'Connor called The Shores of The Swilly

The other song is by the second best thing to ever come out of Donegal, Rory Gallagher called I Fall Apart
