The view is looking southwest from the path leading to Dun Aonghasa in springtime. We see here dry stone wall of limestone laid in a pattern suggestive of herringbone, splotches of orange lichen mark the stones. Against the wall is growing a variety of plants. The prominent white flowers are Greater Burnet saxifrage (Scientific Name: Pimpinella major) (Irish Name: Coll an dromain). Beneath are leaves of Wild Strawberry (Scientific Name: Fragaria vesca) (Irish Name: Su talun fiain) as well as fern and grass. Beyond the wall is karst landscape rising to the ridge. Above the ridge, storm clouds gather. Inishmore, Aran Islands, County Galway, Ireland.

View from a horse drawn trap headed down Cottage Road toward the village of Kilronan on a early June day, the island of Inishmore. On the right a stone ditch (wall), at the base the white flowers of Burnet saxifrage (Scientific Name: Pimpinella saxifraga) (Irish Name: Ainis fhiain). A steeple with bell and cross just visible. In the distance is the island of Inishmaan, the North Atlantic and Galway Bay. Aran islands, County Galway, Ireland.

On the southernmost tip of the Aran Islands, the Inisheer Lighthouse guides the southern entrance of Galway Bay. This photograph was taken from the Doolin ferry proceeding to Inisheer. The view is to the southwest. When the light was automated in 1978 the attendant residence was moved 2 kilometers (1.2 miles) and the light monitored via radio link. Both tower and former dwelling were built of the local very hard crystalline limestone. The tower and light are distinguished by the banded markings (daymark) and frequency and is 111.6 feet (34 meters) high. The lighthouse position is 53 degrees 02.797' North 09 degrees 31.613' West.

Set in the village of Cill Mhuirbhigh on the Aran Island of Inishmore this church is dedicated to Saint Colman MacDuach Church, the 7th century founder of the monastery Cill Mac Duach (Kilmacduach) of Galway. Here is the church interior viewed from the west wall, looking toward the east gable and entrance to the chancel. Inishmore, Aran Islands, County Galway, Ireland.

The welcome sign on ferry dock at Caherard, Inisheer, Aran Islands, County Galway, Republic of Ireland. Signage within the Gaeltacht (Irish speaking region) is in the Irish language.

The view is looking south, southwest from the path leading to Dun Aonghasa. We see here a karst landscape, grass and yellow wildflowers fill the grikes (crevices in the limestone). There is a mysterious single upright stone slab in the foreground, that is unlikely to be a tombstone given the location, more likely it is an outlier of the cheval de fries fortification that is higher on this slope. Clearly seen are a series of dry stone walls. Above the ridge, clouds gather in front of a rain shower. Inishmore, Aran Islands, County Galway, Ireland

This photograph captures both PMV Plassey (or Plassy) shipwreck and Lighthouse on the coast of Inisheer. The two landmarks are 1.13 miles (1.82 km) apart. March 8, 1960 the cargo ship Plassy struck Finnis Rock (Carraig na Finise) during a storm while sailing Galway Bay with a cargo of whiskey, stained glass and yarn. The crew was rescued, later the ship washed onto Inisheer by a second storm. Early January 2014, a few months before this photograph was taken, storm "Christine" moved Plassey to this position. A tourist attraction, the wreck is seen in the opening credits to the popular television series "€œFather Ted." On the southernmost tip of the Aran Islands, the Inisheer Lighthouse guides the southern entrance of Galway Bay. The view is looking southwest from the Doolin Ferry headed to Innisheer.

View of the island of Inishmore (Inis Mor) from close to the wall of the inner enclosure of Dun Aonghasa (Dun Aengus) facing east (northeast to southeast as well) encompassing the north and south coasts. There are surrounding dry stone walls that define the second enclosure of the Bronze/Iron Age fort and beyond are numerous walled fields and farm houses. Visible on the distant ridge is Dun Eochla as a tiny bump towards the north coast (left) other places visible are the Oat Quarter, Ballinacregga. Inishmore (Inis Mor), Aran Islands, County Galway, Ireland

The view east, northeast from an outer enclosure of looking along the concentric wall surrounding the inner enclosure of Dun Aonghasa (Dun Aengus), the exceptional dry stone and walkway visible. White flowers of Sea Campion (scientific name: Silene uniflora) (irish name: Coiren mara) at the wall base. Here the land falls away to review a view of the North Atlantic Ocean, Galway Bay.

A roadside shrine on Cottage Road, Inishmore. A large crucifix set with dry stone walls with cut flowers. The walls are the native limestone. It is a spring (early June) afternoon and there are fern and wildflowers. The white flowers are Greater Burnet saxifrage (Scientific Name: Pimpinella major). In the distance are more dry stone walls around fields, a stone shed, feeding horses and the sea, being Galway Bay, storm clouds with distant rain. Aran Islands, County Galway, Ireland.
