Malin Head Nature Photography

A lovely set of photographs inspired by the rich natural diversity at Malin Head, Inishowen, Co. Donegal by Ronan McLaughlin.

Malin Head or Cionn Mhálanna is the most northerly headland of the mainland of Ireland, and the most northerly point is actually a small islet 2 km northeast of Malin Head, known as Dúnaldragh or Fort of the bird flocks, Inishowen Peninsula, County Donegal. It lies at latitude 55.38ºN. Malin Head gives its name to the Malin sea area. There is a famous met station on the head. The oldest coastal radio statio in Europe can be found here, operating since 1902 and is part of the Irish Coastguard,
