Sligo is a town along the Wild Atlantic Way on the North west coast of Ireland. It is a very beautiful area with many attractions and very old heritage sites to visit. We climbed the new Knocknarea track up to the top (have ever only gone the old way up before). Well up there we just managed to take a photo of the new illustration. Then the rain clouds started to assemble. Just before the rain swept in, we hurried down the narrow track through dense pine forrest.
Strandhill is located in the beautiful West Coast of Ireland, facing the open wild Atlantic and backed by the Mountain Knocknarea. The mountain is said to host Queen Maeves’s Tomb, and Knocknarea seems to have been a major place of ritual and meeting in the Neolithic era. Today Strandhill is a very friendly place, a small place with a big heart. It also hosts some of the most amazing surf brakes in the West Coast of Ireland, only crowded by seals and the occasional dolphin.
There’s a great friendly local community cultivating land and relationships planting seeds for the future of Strandhill.
The Strandhill illustration is inspired by stories from growing up on the mountain, playing among the ivy clad walls and hiding in the green lush Glen. A very special place for us.
The print is available in our online store or at Shells Cafe, Strandhill, Ireland.
