Five Fingers Strand, LaggInishowen, County Donegal, Ireland

Under the ever shifting sand banks of ‘Five Fingers Strand’ rests the shipwreck of the ‘Twilight’. This cargo ship sank during a terrible atlantic storm in 1889 whilst returning from Newfoundland to Derry. This stunning old wreck can still be seen here during a low spring tide when the water is very low & the wooden beams can briefly expose to the open air a few times per year.

This shipwreck has held my imagination for years now. I have visited this strand no less than 10 times & each time tried my best to find this wreck although with no success ? The water was always too high & I didn’t actually have a clue on where exactly she rested on this bay! Over the past 3 years I have even returned with my drones believing that from the air I would surely find the hiding ‘Twilight’ ship. Boy was I wrong again as each visit the water was still too high, cloudy or there was high winds which kept me grounded!

Determined to finally get a glimpse of this elusive wreck I done my homework. By using tidal times & weather apps I calculated out the precise time of the lowest spring tide of the year with good sunny/non windy weather. Returning a few days ago & standing on the highest sand dune for a better vantage point I sent my drone out in search & Bingo! Finally after all this time & failure I can now proudly show you the remains of the elusive ‘Twilight’ shipwreck
