Description

The Gap of Dunloe is a narrow mountain pass between MacGillycuddy’s Reeks and Purple Mountain in County Kerry, Ireland. It is about 11 km (6.8 mi) from north to south. Within it are five lakes: Coosaun Lough, Black Lake, Cushnavally Lake, Auger Lake, and Black Lough (north to south). These lakes are connected by the River Loe. Between the first two lakes is an old arch bridge called the ‘Wishing Bridge’ so named because it is said that wishes made while upon it are destined to come true. The Gap has long been a popular tourist attraction. The road through it is narrow, winding and is difficult for larger vehicles. A popular form of transport for tourists is the horse-drawn trap, a cart where up to four occupants sit facing each other. There are also riding ponies for hire. The trap and ponies are guided by men from families that live in and around the Gap. These poneymen use a rotation system called the Turn which determines who takes the next customers. The Turn has been in existence since the 1920s and is passed down in the families to the next generation. Bikes can also be rented in the town of Killarney and ridden through The Gap. This place was used as a filming location in the Irish film The Crying Game. The road through The Gap from a popular starting point, Kate Kearney’s Cottage, down to Lord Brandon’s Cottage, is about 11 km long, climbing and descending about 200 metres altogether. Many people hike or bike the route. The old red sandstone cliffs of the Gap of Dunloe are a popular location for rock climbing, the main climbing being on the western slopes, mainly of horizontal cracks, and so depend on cams for protection.

Specification

PRINTS
All prints produced with the highest quality long-life archive inks on 250g heavyweight paper and are supplied rolled in strong 7.5cm (3″) diameter postal tubes for reduced curl and safe transport. The pictures supplied suit standard frame sizes that are available in many furnishing and hardware stores such as Ikea.

The black outline is to show the edges of the print and to demonstrate what the print would look like in a frame. The finished prints do NOT have the jskelly.co.uk watermarks shown in the previews on screen.

I post pictures all over the world. So, if you have a loved one in far off places, enter their delivery address at checkout and I’ll happily ship to them directly.

Prints are shipped rolled-up in strong, wide postal tubes, ready for framing.

UK – Standard UK shipping usually takes around 1 – 3 days.
International – Standard (from approximately $10) or Tracked and Signed (from approximately $15) typically takes 7 to 10 days to the USA.

Standard 50x40cm pictures are kept in stock and usually dispatched within 24 hours (excluding weekends) – all other sizes are printed to order and usually take an extra 24 hours to dispatch.
