Ben Bulben is Ireland’s most distinctive mountain and known in some parts as
Ireland's version of Table Mountain.
Located just north of the thriving town of Sligo, part of the range known
as the Dartry Mountains, in the North West of Ireland, it presides over the town like a giant sentry monitoring the comings
and goings of the people and the life with a watchful eye. Sligo County is known as Yeats Country after the great poet, William
Butler Yeats, who was born there and is buried at the foot of his beloved Ben Bulben
The famous poem, Under
Ben Bulben, (written by W. B. Yeats, after whom Yeats Country is named), is basically a description of Yeats Country. It describes
the sights that he saw in Yeats Country. The following is an excerpt from Under Ben Bulben:

Strandhill is not just a beach and lovely
sunsets. It also has some really
areas.. Take the Glen here on the side of Knocknarae mountain. A wonderous step back in time encompassing
rock sheets formed from Ice Glaciers. Some are over a hundered feet high!!!
Take a walk in the Glen, you will be
Blackrock Lighthouse. A famous landmark
fearuring Rosses Point and Strandhill
This is an amazing spring sunset, I take an awful lot of snaps roud this area. Alas it is being threatened
by a masive runway extension.!! Help save Dorrins Strand by logging on to www.dorrins.com
