Favourite West Cork Photographs: 2020 Edition

Roaringwater Journal loves to explore and discover our beautiful West Cork. Here is our 2020 selection of favourite photographs – yours, as measured by Facebook likes, and ours, as measured by Robert and Finola’s own quirky tastes. Remember, these are personal choices – each one represents a memory or a place special to us. Also, they encompass the strange year we have experienced in which we all had to focus on our own stomping grounds. We’ve captioned each one, but no more text, so just enjoy!

    • Thanks, Stephanie – I am always promising not to take more sunset photos as they get clichéd, and then I get sucked in again… I’m sure you know the feeling. 🙂


  1. Some crackers here, aren’t we so lucky! The typhoon was especially stunning but I love the simplicity of the Sheep’s Head road. All those rich and varying colours. Here’s to some serious exploring in 2021!


  2. Beautiful, evocative photos as always. Let’s just hope we get this virus under control soon, so we can all come back to this very special place.


  3. Thank you Finola for this wonderful selection of photographs and another amazing year of your journal. It was very inspiring while reading. I hope you and Robert are fine and enjoy a peaceful Christmas time. Greetings from Switzerland!
