bád eddie

One of Donegal’s most famous landmarks and probably the most photographed, lies on Magheraclogher Beach outside Bunbeg. It’s the remains of a boat (Bád Eddie is Irish for Eddie’s boat) that ran aground in the 1970s and has sat there for almost 50 years. We’ve never been there and as it’s in serious danger of collapsing completely, we made the journey today to see it for ourselves and get some photos of our own before it disappears for good.

      Seems to be a campaign to preserve and save it but hard to see how they can succeed at this late stage. Seawater, metal and wood aren’t a good mix especially on such an exposed beach
