Croaghaun, Ireland's highest cliffs
Croaghaun, Ireland's highest cliffs
Contrary to popular belief, the cliffs of Slieve League are not the highest in Europe or even Ireland. At only 1972 feet they are easily pipped by these on Achill (2192 ft, 688m), where a quartzite mountain is slowly being consumed by the Atlantic.
