The cliffs of Slieve League with their 595 meters are very often described as the highest of cliffs in Europe which is not correct. Apparently the Cliffs of Croaghaun on Achill Island are higher. Even though I can’t make the height out .. not even on Wikipedia. I just compared the information on the Wiki’s which one is higher but on both sites they clame to be highest cliffs of Europe.

Well anyways,

One of the ways to view the cliffs is taking a small road of the town Teelin which leads by Carrigan Head up Bunglass Point.

    What fabulous photos !!

    Sliabh Liag is a great name and a very good phonetic rendition of the Irish – but, you do know that the English name is Slieve League ?

    Forgive me for being pedantic.

    I would share one or two photos of Donegal – my favourite place in the world.

    Can I attach these somehow ?

    Regards – John Bradley

    actually, sliabh liag IS the irish and correct name, not a phonetic rendition of it. phonetically would be shleev league.

    I am using Slieve League in a song, and am not sure what the actual pronunciation is…help??

    Slieve is pronounced the same way as sleeve (as is, the sleeve of your jacket).
    League is pronounced like the first part three letters of ‘eagle’ with an L in front.
