Isle of Doagh, Clonmany, Inishowen, Co. Donegal

The Isle of Doagh (Irish: Oileán na Dumhcha, meaning “Isle of the Dune”) is also known in English as Doagh Isle or Doagh Island) and is a small peninsula in the north of Inishowen. It once was an island, yet over time, the channel between Doagh and the mainland silted up and it became joined to the mainland. Nevertheless, the area continued to be referred as the Isle of Doagh.

The ruins of Carrickabraghy Castle stands at the north-western extremity of the peninsula.
