I have anxiety. I have a serious health anxiety disorder, a severe general anxiety disorder and also a mild social anxiety disorder. I’ve had moderate anxiety since I was a child and when I was 20 it blew up into a serious condition that affects almost every day of my life.
Day two of our trip was pretty simple. We wanted to end up at the Slieve League cliffs and see as much as we could on the way. Sadly, time was against us, so we decided to cut down through the county. We missed out on a lot of the Wild Atlantic Way route. We had another glorious day though and I’m so grateful!
A couple of weeks ago, me and Eoghan did another bit of Wild Atlantic Way exploring. I’ve just realised, almost all my posts have been on WAW road trips, so for those of you who don’t know what it is, the Wild Atlantic Way is a driving route along the entire Atlantic coast of Ireland, starting in west Cork all the way to Donegal.
So as I’ve mentioned before, Eoghan has moved back to Donegal. Our plan to see each other every couple of weekends hasn’t exactly gone to plan so I was literally over the moon when he last minute decided to come down Friday night. Sadly it was only the one night because he was working again Saturday but sure, I’ll take what I can get!
Fort Dunree is an 18th-century defensive site perched on cliffs alongside Lough Swilly on the Inishowen peninsula in Donegal. Always keen to do a bit of exploring, I stopped off on a recent visit. I found the place to be so interesting, steeped in history with plenty of walking paths and information boards dotted around the grounds. And, as you can imagine, incredible Donegal views in all directions.
