The Saltee Islands Shore

Rocks on the treacherous shoreline of Great Saltee, one of the Saltee Islands, off the coast of Co. Wexford, Ireland. There's no natural harbour on the island. This coast, and the coast of South Wexford in general, was known as The Graveyard of a Thousand Ships, due to the hundreds of ships that met their end here. The geology of the Saltee Islands pre-cambrian bedrock - granite and granitoid gneiss - shows them to have some of the oldest rock in Ireland
