Northern Ireland’s First National Park?

There are currently three areas under consideration for designation as a national park in Northern Ireland; the North Coast including the Giant’s Causway, the Glens of Antrim and the Mourne Mountains in County Down.

The Mourne Mountains has my vote, its an area where you can get away from modern life.  The two photographs below were taken last year in the Silent Valley.  No special technique was used in taking these photographs, they were just the product of a fun day out of the office.

    • Thanks! I actually live in Saint Paul, Minnesota. Two of my getpdnarrnas were born in Clontarf, their getpdnarrnas having been some of the pioneer settlers to the area in the late 1870s. I have visited Ireland several times, and on my last visit I found the Irish people to be a bit more curious about their relatives who left for America. Since I have done some of my own research about my Irish relatives in America, I thought I could help them a little bit. Thanks again for the comment I appreciate it!Aine
