These photographs were all taken in April and May of 2007 in the area around Lough Anscaul, near Annascaul, Kerry, Ireland. We hope you enjoy the photos. We also have photos from January 2004 and photos from July 2005.
The local legend says: "The name of the village, Annascaul, is derived from the ford at that point where the road to Dingle leads across the river Scál and is a corruption of the word, Átha-na-Scáil, meaning, in English, the River of the Hero, and the hero being Cuchulainn whose grave is reputed to be on the side of the mountain above Droumavalla, north of Annascaul."
