Clochán na bhFomhórach | Northern-Ireland

Clochán na bhFomhórachis is Irish for Giant's Causeway. An area of about 40,000 interlocking basalt columns  on the coast of Northern Ireland. This striking landscape was caused by volcanic activity during the Tertiary, some 50–60 million years ago.

After its discovery in the late 17th century, there was much argument as to whether the Causeway had been created by men with picks and chisels, by nature, or by the efforts of a giant.
