The Windy Gap - Co. Mayo

The Windy Gap Mayo 96 P1030971

The Windy Gap is a narrow stretch of twisting and uneven road that cuts through the Ox Mountains between Lough Talt in Co. Sligo and Bonniconlon in Co. Mayo. It's a lonely and desolate landscape, populated by flocks of mountainy sheep that sleep by the roadside (and often on it) during the night. It's also a very beautiful place, in any weather.
