"Dunmore Head and Blasket Islands from The Dingle Peninsula",
©2006 Elroy Christenson
Dunmore Head on Dingle Peninsula is the western most point of Europe. The Dingle Peninsula is one of the smaller peninisula on the west side of Ireland. It is a bit more remote since the roads are narrow and accomodations limited there are fewer tourists there. The town of Dingle is noted for it's authentic Irish music while the Blasket Islands in the distance are the home of the roots of Irish language. Near this spot is a major education center called the Blasket Center to Irish language which was banned during the dominance of British control.
