Private Swap - Northern Ireland

A beautiful Lough Neagh map card sent from Northern Ireland!


The card says that Lough Neagh is the largest body of freshwater in Britain or Ireland, approximately 20 miles long and 9 miles wide situated some 20 miles to the west of Belfast. The lough is used for a variety of recreational and commercial activities.
An old Irish story tells how the lough was formed when Ireland's legendary giant, Fionn mac Cumhail (or Finn McCool), scooped up a portion of the land and tossed it at a Scottish rival. He missed and the chunk of earth landed in the Irish Sea thus creating the Isle of Man.


Thank you, Rachel!
