The Poison Glen, Donegal


I chanced upon this video by Enya, which was filmed in a beautiful and rugged part of Donegal with the very intriguing name, The Poison Glen.
I know the area pretty well, as for several years, I used to spend New Year’s Eve there with a friend whose house was right at the end of the glen. The view of the lake from her house was very inspiring, and I based this illustration from Marie Heaney’s “The Names Upon The Harp” on it.


It’s nice to hear Enya’s magical music, and to be reminded of “Na Leatha Geal M’óige”, the bright days of my youth.
