‘Echoes of the Causeway’ – The Red Bay Selkie17th April 2020
One of the eight sites on the Echoes of the Causeway heritage trail app, this story is set at Gortmore, Limavady.
With spectacular views over Lough Foyle, Donegal and the Scottish islands of Islay and Jura, Gortmore’s lofty prospects reveal clues to fantastical tales. Looking north nods to the Irish sea god, Manannán mac Lir; south-west unearths a glint of Broighter gold.

Nothing can deter Mannanan, God of the Sea. When he sees something that he wants, he takes it.
The Echoes of the Causeway project was part of the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018, supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, Department of Communities, Tourism NI and Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council.
