Description

Fahee North, lies at the top of Glencolumbkille, the valley of St Colmchille (c. 520-597), the Apostle of the Hebrides. The limestone terraces and summits of nearby Turloughmore, Gortaclare and Slievecarran form a rocky western boundary to low-lying lands, lakes, turloughs and woodlands bounded in the distance to the east by the Slieve Aughty and Maghera Mountains, over 20 kilometres away. The lowlands are the result of millions of years of erosion of the limestone, mostly by chemical dissolution by rain and groundwater as well as the physical effects of huge moving ice sheets which deepened and widened the valley.
