L9406 : Breakwater, Inishmaan

taken 7 years ago, 4 km from Eararna, Galway, Ireland

Breakwater, Inishmaan
Breakwater, Inishmaan
The new harbour on the north coast of Inishmaan is protected by breakwaters composed of Xblocs, shaped concrete blocks which lock together and absorb a high proportion of wave power. The breakwater is not continuous - the south end of the harbour is closed by a tidal reef (seen to the left).

On the skyline is the ancient ringfort of Dún Chonchubhúir L9305 with the village this side of it.
