SCENES from IRELAND


3. The Doagh Famine Village Museum, Doagh Island (Isle), Inishowen Peninsula, Donegal

 

 

 

 

Doagh Island is a quiet peninsular for wild flowers, sea breezes and relaxing walking

Doagh Island is a quiet peninsular for wild flowers, sea breezes and relaxing walking AND of course, the Doagh Island Famine ('folk') Museum (below). The ruins of Carrickabraghey (Carrickabraghy) Castle are on the left overlooking the sea (Atlantic ocean!).

 

The small solitary tower of that remains of Carrickabraghy Castle on Doagh Isle.

 

All the cars and coaches parked up for lots of visitors to the Doagh Island Famine Museum

In the car park!

Doagh Famine Village Museum: In the car park and sets the tone for great few hours of history and craic as illustrated below!

 

You get far your money than a cup of tea and a slice of delicious brown bread.

Michael, the man with the 'manner' - for gifted 'hyper gab' - excellent 'craic'.

Michael, the man with the 'manner' - for gifted 'hyper gab' - excellent unbiased historical  'craic' on such diverse subjects as an Irish wake, Presbyterian meeting house, an Orange hall, Mass rock, the travelling community (Irish gypsies - the 'travellers'), Republican safe houses, 'Old Ireland' in an 'uncommercialised' - interdenominational way i.e. the history, food, cures and the rest of Irish life in an entertaining humorous way. 

 

Examples of traditional buildings in the west of Ireland.

The wake, complete with 'professional' wailer on the right of the coffin.

The eviction!

Doagh Famine Village Museum: The eviction! If you couldn't pay the rent you were evicted and the house boarded up. If you broke back into the house, it was demolished. A great place to visit, thoroughly entertaining and much history, some of it uncomfortable for either Irish or English people, to learn and reflect on!

 

Looking inland from the north end of Doagh Isle.

 

Nothing but the Atlantic Ocean to the west of Doagh Island and a last view before heading back to the Lough Swilly Ferry at Buncrana.

 

Doagh Island, Inishowen Peninsula, County Donegal, North-West Ireland: At Doagh Island the kettle is always on and a very friendly reception awaits you at the famine Museum on the Inishowen Peninsula of Donegal. There is lots to see before the cup of tea and brown soda bread. There is also some lovely coastal walking not far from this fascinating collection of Irish heritage.
