The Wild Atlantic Way – Cnoc Fola

Brigid Gallagher takes us on trip up the Wild Atlantic Way.. there are many islands of the west coast of Ireland and some are inhabited.. Quite blustery and they get the first of the transatlantic weather but amazing places to visit with lots of wild life.. Join Brigid as she heads up the coast with some photos of the islands…
