Looking down to Dooagh Village from the reservoir.

 

 

In the centre of Dooagh village a stone and plaque commemorates the achievement of Don Allum who was the first man to row the Atlantic Ocean in both directions. He landed on the rocky shore of Dooagh's stony pebbled beach on the 4th September 1987 from St John's Newfoundland, thus completing the 2nd leg of his epic voyage in a 19 ft 10 ins plywood open boat (the QE 3!) after 77 days at sea - remarkable voyage! I bet he was ready for a drink at "The Pub"!

 

Dooagh Beach and the white houses of the village with the backdrop of Croaghaun- Mountain in cloud again!

 

The 'gang' walks along the seashore east from Dooagh towards Keel Strand.

 

Lots of little inlets carved out by the bashing of the Atlantic waves.
