The bustling town of Schull. The town is sometimes spelt 'Skull' for instance by Ordnance Survey and Admiralty maps, but Schull is used on roadsigns and favoured by the inhabitants of the town. The book Irish Place Names by Deirdre & Laurence Flanagan quotes both spellings but does not comment on which is correct. The Irish 'an scoil' (meaning 'school') avoids the problem!
A pleasure boat is moored at the pier in this tranquil scene.
This photo shows Schull is still a very active fishing port.
A delightful town scene which despite the bustle, seems to demonstrate a leisurly pace of life.
Another view of the pier. The local railway branch once terminated on the pier.
