Fans of the iconic Donegal shipwreck Bád Eddie will be able to see it in a whole new light this Christmas thanks to some incredible teamwork by locals.
Bád Eddie was last night adorned with Christmas lights to become a spectacular festive scene on Magherclogher beach, Bunbeg.
The display was created by a group of neighbours from Strand Road, with Padraig Ó Domhnaill designing the stars. The lights were turned on by Mary O’ Donnell, Liam Gillespie and Nell Cullen – all who have watched the comings and goings around the boat since she arrived on the beach in 1977.
Ní neart go cur le chéile (There is strength in unity) – and this wonderful collaboration highlights the beauty of the weakening shipwreck.
Bád Eddie is one of Donegal’s most photographed landmarks – and now people all over the world can enjoy some beautiful new festive scenes, thanks to these photos from Sonia Nic Giolla Easbuig from LIGID Productions:
