Gap of Dunloe, Kerry - 904
An acrylic landscape painting of the narrow winding road, that that wends it's way through the Gap of Dunloe in Kerry. A traditional Irish cottage rises from the rocky terrain in the distance and just a little further on the path the dark waters of Auger Lake lie.
The Gap of Dunloe was created over twenty five thousand years ago during Ireland’s final and devastating Ice Age. The name Dunloe though has gone through a series of variations and is thought to come from Dela Mac Loich who was the father of five warrior chieftains of the Fir Bolg, the fourth people to inhabit Ireland according to folklore.
“Black Lake” a lake inside the Gap (one of five) is also known as “The Wishing Bridge” and according to local legend any wish spoken while standing upon “The Wishing Bridge” will come true.
