My favourite place when the sun is setting, at low tide, is Cummeen Strand, at the causeway where you can walk or drive to Coney Island from the mainland. It is a place of wonderful colour and reflections at that time of the evening and I have been known to utter whoops of delight at the visuals I was presented with on that beautiful causeway.
The “big house” on Coney Island, known in various histories as “Floods” or “Dorrans”, depending on which of the former residents gets a namecheck, stands ruined and desolate, one of the great landmarks of Coney Island and, indeed, Sligo bay. It took a jog across the causeway from me to capture the sun setting over the Big Bleak House.
