A sunset image of Downpatrick Head sea stack showing the contrast in the sky from the warm colours to the cool blues behind the sea stack.

Located just a few miles from Ballycastle in Co Mayo. The name Downpatrick is derived from St Patrick who founded a church in the location. The Sea stack is called “Dun Briste” meaning Broken Fort. Legend has it that when a Pagan chief refused to convert to Christianity St Patrick struck the ground with his crozier splitting the headland into the sea. Who doesn’t love a good legend. The image was taken just before sunset and the evening light reveals the beautiful layers and textures of Dun Briste and views of Sligo can been seen in the background.
