Malin Head

Cross at The Head

Memorial Cross at Malin Head

 This wooden cross sits on the furthermost northerly point in Ireland, Malin Head and overlooks the wild Atlantic Ocean. There is nothing but sea from here to Newfoundland and Canada to the West, Iceland to the North so you can understand why this is a place for calm reflection and wonder.

The cross was erected some years ago in memory of a young French man who drowned off this headland. The cross is no longer there due to being destroyed by the weather.
