Beach near Wee House of Malin, Inishowen
Oil on linen canvas,
Shafts of winter sunshine on the stony beach on Inishowen. Just behind the viewer is the a cave, where folklore has it that no matter how many people enter it will hold all. It predates a monastic foundation and Holy Well. The cave and holy well were originally associated with the belief in the sanctity of water and local tradition states that the original foundation was built to exorcise evil from the area. The “Saint” venerated was St. Muirdhealach. He supposedly blessed the well (located in a cavern underneath the large rock directly in front of the ruins of the church).
