Slea Head 🤩 and his famous drive is an amazing place to visit 🏞️ Do you like driving at the shoreline? ⭐
Slea Head 🤩 is a promontory in the westernmost part of the Dingle Peninsula, located in the barony of Corca Dhuibhne in southwest County Kerry🙂. It belongs to Munster's province (County Kerry) and is served by the R559 road; the nearest villages are Ballyickeen and Coumeenoole. 🗺️ The headland itself, together with the larger part of Mount Eagle's southern slopes is formed from steeply dipping beds of the pebbly sandstones and conglomerates of the Slea Head Formation, dating from the Devonian period and traditionally referred to as the Old Red Sandstone😀
Just to the northwest of Slea Head is Dunmore Head, the westernmost point of Ireland. Slea Head is a well known and recognised landmark and also a very scenic viewpoint, with a dramatic view of the Blasket Islands⛰️On the 11 March 1982, the Spanish container ship, Ranga, was wrecked at Dunmore Head, close to Slea Head after losing power in a storm.😯
I thought the most beautiful thing in the world must be shadow, the million moving shapes and cul-de-sacs of shadow.

Hace algunos años, mi grupo favorito era Imagine Dragons (el antiguo); siempre me gustó la portada de Night Visions. Cuando me enteré más tarde de que existía un sitio como La Calzada del Gigante en Irlanda, supe que algún día haría mi propia representación de la imagen. Y aquí estoy, cumpliendo un pequeño objetivo personal :)
Y aunque a nadie le interese, aquí mis canciones favoritas: “Rocks”, “Round and round”, “Cha-ching (till we grow older)”, “Tiptoe” y “Look how far we’ve come”.

The autumn colours 🤩 in the Phoenix Park looking amazing and some spots are great for pictures 🙏
Phoenix Park is an urban park in Dublin lying 2–4 km west of the city centre, north of the River Liffey. 🏞️ Its 11 km perimeter wall encloses 707 hectares it is one of the largest enclosed recreational spaces within any European capital city. It includes large areas of grassland and tree-lined avenues, and since the 17th century has been home to a herd of wild fallow deer. 😀 The English name comes from the Irish fionn uisce meaning "clear water"
After the Normans conquered Dublin and its hinterland in the 12th century, Hugh Tyrrel, 1st Baron of Castleknock, granted a large area of land, including what now comprises the Phoenix Park, to the Knights Hospitaller. They established an abbey at Kilmainham on the site now occupied by Royal Hospital Kilmainham. 🏛️ The knights lost their lands in 1537 following the Dissolution of the Monasteries under Henry VIII of England. Eighty years later the lands reverted to the ownership of the King's representatives in Ireland.😀
On the restoration of Charles II of England, his Viceroy in Dublin, the Duke of Ormond, established a royal hunting park on the land in 1662. It contained pheasants and wild deer, making it necessary to enclose the entire area with a wall.🗺️
