Photographer's Note

The coralline algae, are a stunningly beautiful feature of some parts of the west of Ireland. This beach is at An Cheathrϊ Rua (Carreroe), Co. Galway about 25 miles west of Galway city. Frequently called "Coral Strands" or "Coral Beaches" they have nothing to do with animal corals but are the remains of seaweeds that grow in detached, rock-like growths in the subtidal. These beaches are a unique part of natural heritage and no such material can be removed; in fact it is illegal to remove any material from Irish beaches.
