The Odd Side Of Donegal

cover for donegal

Ah, Donegal. Perched on the northwestern edge of Ireland, barely secured to the rest of the country by six miles of border, and reaching further north than the North. Land of rain-swept mountains, yellow-flowered gorse and stretching wilderness. And, as I hope to demonstrate, a decidedly odd place indeed.
