It is for many Donegal people around the world the most iconic image that reminds them of home.
But not too many of us can say we have seen it close-up – at dawn.
But this morning local accountant Pat McDermott scaled Donegal’s highest point and took this stunning picture.
The picture shows winter is stretching from its slumber with snow covering the peak.
Gardai are also warning motorists to take extra care on roads across the county.
Temperatures plunged below freezing last night leaving ice on many roads around the county.
“Roads are icy this morning and people should take extra care if driving.
“Some roads are very slippy and we are asking people to slow down and not to take any chances,” said a Garda spokesman.
