Muckross, Kilcar, County Donegal, Ireland
Muckross Head is a prime example of natural forces, which shows that our island was & still is very much alive. Muckross headland is absolutely stunning with its enormous almost vertical cliff face created by of millions of years of seabed geologically compressed into sandstone layers. Each layer has a distinctive colour which is packed with fossils from extinct plants & sea creatures from an era when Ireland was once a warm tropical island situated near the equator line ? Over time, continental drift slowly drifted us northwards straight into the cold & rain ? When looking at these sandstone layers it’s actually like reading the pages of a 300 million year old geology book on Ireland.
I’m sure you may be curious on the massive ‘EIRE’ stamped onto this headland? Well, these are known as ‘Head Markers’ Over 80 of these were created during WW2 as an early form of “Sat Nav” to ensure pilots would recognise each part of Ireland they were flying over.
