It’s been quite a while since I posted a Thursday Doors from Donegal. This one comes from Inch Island which lies just off the Donegal coast, at the start of the Inishowen peninsula. It covers an area of five square miles and is accessed by a causeway road.
We passed a traditional Irish cottage on the way, with a red door.
After a lovely scenic drive we arrived at a small, quiet beach and pier.
On our journey to Inch Island we passed through a village with an unusual name.
Burnfoot village, on the Inishowen peninsula in county Donegal, has a population of around 450 people. I have no idea why the name is Burnfoot in English but the Irish name for it is Bun na hAbhann, which means ‘river basin’.
We left the Gaffer with his cousin, Sid, while we took our trip to Inch Island. They get on well but Sid is a few dog-years older, so hasn’t as much energy as the Gaffer and likes to lounge in his bed most of the time.
But guess what happens every time he leaves it to spend a penny.
The Gaffer, never one to miss an opportunity, keeps it warm till he returns.
I hope you’ll stop by for another Thursday Doors post next week but in the meantime, Norm has some interesting doors over on his blog, well worth checking out.
