Described as the 8th Wonder of the World and by geologists as basalt polygonal columns formed some 50 million years ago as lava cooled. But we know better. It was built by the giant Finn MacCool as a passage to Scotland after he was challenged by the Scottish giant, Benandonner. However, on learning that the Scottish giant was much bigger than he was, his wife disguised him as a baby. On seeing this, Benendonner figured that if this was the Finn’s baby, then Finn himself must be a giant indeed and fled back to Scotland, destroying the Causeway as he went.
