Photographer's Note

Clare Island is located on the Western Coast of Ireland, County Mayo. This shot is of the island's cliffs, and you can see Croagh Patrick's peak on Ireland proper in the distance. The island itself is only about 15 square miles, but it’s worth a visit. It is the home of Grace O’Malley. She is oft cited as ‘The Pirate Queen’, however, was mainly, a strong and intelligent woman who managed to hold her own, outwit invaders, and did it with style. She fought for and maintained the honor and respect of both her married and family clan’s names, and she was quite an amazing woman. Her tomb is located on the island.
