“Cara Na Mara” (Friend of the sea) or “Bád Eddie” or “Eddie’s Boat” are the names given to this old wreck resting on Magheraclogher Beach along Donegal’s Wild Atlantic Way. The “Cara Na Mara” fishing vessel ran into trouble during stormy seas in the early 1970s. The remains of the boat are deteriorating rapidly, especially since June 2009 when the alleged “worst storm in living memory” hit the area. Sadly now one half of the boat is almost gone completely

I’ve captured a slightly different perspective than my usual photos of this old shipwreck. You may still see some beauty that still remains in the small details & textures of these old wooden boards. It may be just my odd way of thinking, but I believe this old decaying wreck holds as much beauty & wonder as it did when she was in her prime, fishing the deep Atlantic waters over 40 years ago…..
