Ballyliffin, Inishowen, County Donegal, Ireland

There are many locations on this single photo. This long striking sandy beach is Pollan Strand & to the right is Ballyliffin Golf Course stretching across the dunes. At the tip of this strand is The Isle of Doagh & the peninsula in the far distance is Malin Head (Ireland’s most northerly point). Just offshore lies the stunning Glashedy Island also known as “Glashedy Rock”.

Glashedy looks more like a little tropical island with its own sandy beach surrounded by emerald & sapphire tainted waters. Its colourful past is also very similar to that from an island of the Caribbean.

During the 19th and early 20th century this Island was used as a hideout for making illegally distilled Poitin. In August 1900 the local sergeant & coast guard mounted an expedition to this Island. They found several hundred gallons of poitin alongside a large quantity of distilling machinery. All was found in a secret cave which was converted to serve as a “still-house” This cave was also very well stocked with fuel and provisions for long stay. These Irish men sure loved their drink! ?
