Laheen's Domain

These are the cliffs of Croaghaun, along the two mile precipice from Saddle Head to Achill Head, Europe's highest sea cliffs. It was not easy getting up this high, I can tell you. It took us about 3 hours with little stops for tea and sandwiches. At one point I was counting my steps, just to get one foot in front of the other. I would stop for breath at every 25. One time I looked back and my sister, Pat, was flaked out on the mountainside. I'll have to scan that pic since I took it!
