Photographer's Note

The Dingle peninsula ends at Slea Head, just a little further from where I am standing;in the distance can be seen the Blasket Islands.

The term Blasket is of uncertain origin, but it may come from the Norse word''brasker'', meaning ''a dangerous place''.The Blasket Islands are a group of islands off the west coast of Ireland, forming part of County Kerry.

They were inhabited until 1953 by a completely Irish speaking population.Many of the descendants currently live in Springfield Massachusetts and some former residents still live on the Dingle peninsula, within sight of their former home.
Note how green is the grass,not surprising that Ireland is known as the Emerald Isle.

This is such a beautiful place, with only the sound of the sea and the sea-birds.

Thanks for looking, your comments are welcomed.
