This will be my last update for a while while I get my workload down and complete my CAA license for the drone pilot so apologies if I don’t pick up on any of your posts for a while, I’ll try and check as and when I can.
Today’s image is the chieftain statue at Boyle, Co Roscommon ~ Unveiled in 1999, this ‘Chieftain’ is overlooking the site where the Battle of Curlew Pass was fought 15th August, 1599. The Battle of Curlew Pass was fought between an English force under Sir Conyers Clifford and a rebel Irish force led by Hugh Roe O’Donnell (Red Hugh O’Donnell). The English were ambushed and routed while marching through a pass in the Curlew Mountains near Boyle.
A magnificent and large piece of metalwork that’s well worth a visit, it’s sited right at the side of the road and has a large car park for visitors to come and enjoy the view out to sea whilst enjoying a picnic.
