Wild Atlantic Way cliffs as you’ve never seen them before
Take a look at this fantastic video which shows the cliffs on the Wild Atlantic Way as you’ve never seen them before.
The footage was taken with a drone-cam and shows thrill seekers climbing up the cliff face at Malin Head, Inishowen, Donegal.
The video was then put together by Bren Whelan along with Wild Atlantic Way Climbing and Donegal TV.
Malin Head is the most northerly point of the Wild Atlantic Way and Whelan said he wanted to show a “new climbing perspective that hasn’t been seen before”.
He is keen to dispel myths about climbing and insists that is a safe and inclusive pastime.
He told the Irish Independent: “I wanted to showcase the area and the work that I do… on Ireland’s number one signature point.
“Climbing is really safe… It allows you to take people into an environment that looks extreme, that is extreme, but that can be extremely safe too”.
“We make it accessible to people… up to 75% of our climbers could be first time climbers.”
Whelan added that he was delighted with how the video turned out and that they were lucky to have chosen the perfect day for the filming to take place.
He said: “The drone was flying around, we were working with Donegal TV, then we had the basking sharks in the background doing something they shouldn’t at this time of year – jumping out of the water!
“The Wild Atlantic Way was putting on a show for us… it was really stunning.
“It’s a pretty unique location… it has so much going for it. Ireland’s largest and most diverse peninsula.”
