The story behind the image

County Mayo in Ireland is full of exciting views of nature, and Downpatrick Head is most certainly one of these. From here you will see the sea stack Dún Briste, a historic rock formation that used to be part of the Irish mainland – until 1393 when a storm broke off some of the rocks, turning the remains into a small island.
