taken 8 years ago, near to Derrydruel and Meenatotan, Donegal, Ireland

Woodland along west side of N56 - Meenlecknalore Townland
Woodland along west side of N56 - Meenlecknalore Townland
This woodland extends approximately a kilometre to the east and is approximately 1.5 km in length. When viewed from the west there appears to be very few trees still living.
I have discovered the reason for the dead trees, there was a major fire in this area in early May 2011.
Three army helicopters were deployed in the effort to extinguish the fire.
There is evidence of the extent of the fire alongside the minor road that runs parallel to N56 on the west.
