Photographer's Note

Carlingford lies on the Cooley Peninsula with woodland, forests, mountains, rivers and varied coastline. It is a land steeped in myth & legend, once inhabited by the great giant, Fionn Machuil. He once roamed the land and on his last day he gathered a large piece of earth and threw it out to sea. He laid down to rest and ended his great life as Slieve Foy ~ Carlingford Mountain. The shape of his body can be seen in the shape of the Mountain. The earth he threw became known as Isle of Man.
In the picture there is also King John's Castle, named after King John who visited Carlingford in 1210. The western portion of the castle predates this visit and was probably commissioned by Hugh de Lacy c. 1190.
This is really one of nice places to visit.
