The pier at Fahan on Lough Swilly, Co. Donegal looks a lonely place in this beautiful Royal plate from the Lawrence Collection. Lough Swilly is famous for many things and one of the most famous is the kidnapping of Red Hugh O'Donnell there. If my memory holds good he was captured by a Carew and we visited the ancestral home of the Carew's earlier this week!
