Killybegs

When you drive through this village you wouldn't think there was much to see other than boats but there are hidden treasures nd you need to explore.
We had a very interesting tour of the process of hand knotted rugs was explained as it had been in earlier years in Donegal.all I can say is their eyesight and hands must have suffered dreadfully never mind repetitive strain injuries.
I have seen and done this before whilst in a visit to India only difference I could see was the Irish sat in a bench and the Indians on the floor.
It was quite a skill but yet the workers probably very low paid compared to most professions.
This ongoing rug above is being made voluntarily by a lady who did work there when the factory was running.
There was also a small fisheries museum where J got to steer a boat into harbour...simulated of course.
