Photographer's Note

Donegal Town is situated on the Eske River which flows into Donegal Bay. The town is the gateway to south Donegal and in summer time visitors flock to the 15th century Donegal Castle which was built by the O'Donnell's, the ruling family in west Donegal until the 17th century.
Donegal Town is also home to the Donegal Railway Heritage Centre which contains many artifacts of railway history from the County.
Just outside the town is the Donegal Craft Village which is very popular with tourists throughout the summer.
There are also the ruins of a 15th century Franciscan Abbey at the mouth of the Bay which is generally agreed to be the location in which the Four Masters decided to write their famous Annals. The Monastery was sacked many times and was twice burned down before its demise in 1601.


While driving around Donegal town, saw this man who was feeding the swans and ducks. he seems to be doing this all the time.

Got the chance to have this shot while the sun is setting and saw the lovely reflection.
