Grace O'Malley.
Lovers leap at loop Head.

Legend has it that Diarmuid and Gráinne eloped to Loop Head and leaped onto a sea stack. Below is Grace O'Malley at her pad on Clare Island waiting to enforce taxation on passing ships. And, the Dobhar-chú is a sea beastie that sucks your brain out then chews you up... beware!

Loop Head, Lover's Leap.
I am the wind on the sea...
The Dobhar-chu.
