Clayey cliff on Island Eddy
Clayey cliff on Island Eddy
This type of clayey cliff face is a common feature on any relatively exposed headlands around the innermost part of Galway Bay. While the example here on Island Eddy is also primarily sandy/clayey, it is much more stony than other examples to the North, at Ballabristy, Tawin, Roscam, Ballyloughane, Blake's Hill, and Gentian Hill.
The photo was taken around the mid point of the tide.
