Achill Island is situated in the west of Ireland and is linked to the rest of County Mayo by a bridge. We were there in mid March 2013 and got would could only be termed turbulent weather (see ‘Four Seasons in a Day‘) when visiting Achill. One minute glorious sunshine and the next sleet and snow.
The image below is taken on the western shore of the Island, the coast that feels the full force of the Atlantic Ocean along it’s length. Wild, windswept, dramatic and beautiful are all adjectives that apply here.
On the hill in the background you can make out the summit crowned in the white of snow.
Enjoy your weekend.
