One of our drives from our base in Ramelton.
A fascinating name for a place.
Bloody Foreland or “Cnoc Fola” (The Hill of Blood) derives its name from the evening sun which illuminates the rocks along this section of the coast to a rich red hue. In the autumn months, too, a thick covering of fern enflames the hillside with a russet-red-brown colouring. Bloody Foreland has no background in factual history to warrant the title “bloody”, although folklore records that one particularly unlikable warlord “Balor of the Evil Eye” was eventually slain by his grandson Lugh Lámh Fhada on the slopes of Cnoc Fola. Indeed some say that the tide of blood which flowed from Balor’s evil eye stained the hillside and gave it its name.
A pretty common occurrence in Ireland.
Sheep captivate me.
