BOOM – Basalt


The Giant’s Causeway is a wondrous place. In fact a place of legend.

It is right at the very North of Ireland in County Antrim on the Atlantic Ocean coast.

The Legend is that the Irish Giant Finn Maccool was having a barnie with his giant friend in Scotland.

The pair started to throw stones at each other. The result was the Causeway on the Irish side and on the Scottish side Fingels cave.

Today the Causeway is one of the most Instagrammed places in Ireland. Maybe even in the world.


But as this wonderful photo of my Daddy shows, when he was a lad in the early thirties, the more things change the more they stay the same.


With him that day, which was for sure a big event for them, his Mum my dearest Granny Barr.
