Killybegs is Ireland’s largest fishing port located in the waters of Donegal Bay.
Very interesting fence and I like the black and white edit.Have a good day.
Unusual gate... but it serves it's purpose.
Its a safety gate I think as there is one close to us. The curves make it very appealing to look at & photograph.
We call those kissing-gates; either because the gate "kisses" the fence on either side, or because of their popularity with courting couples. I doubt if the latter pay much attention to the design of the gate.

That's called a kissing gate
Hooray, That's what we called them in England when I was little, glad someone else knows the correct name.
It's a nice gate, no entrance for bicycles, ha?
Thats a very cunning pedestrians entrance here. No suitcase or bicycles going through this little one.
A special gate, a bit difficult to enter the park.
Fraai hekwerk Bill.Groet Kees.
That's the coolest gate I've ever seen!
Hi Bill Funny fence.Groettie from Patricia.
This is news to me. We live in a gated community but the gates are very different than what I see here! :) Maybe it's just decoration. I mean, really, why build a round gate? You may never get through the thing. Or maybe that's just me? :)
That's beautiful metal work, Bill.
...sure would slow things down.
We used to call those "kissing gates', because you had to kiss before you could go through.
Hi Bill, very quaint and your B&W makes it so much more special. Greetings Jo
It has an interesting shape!
What an unusual looking gate.I like that you've used black and white here, it works very well.All the best Jan
It looks like a kissing gate!! It was when my daughter and I were sightseeing in Warwickshire that she pointed out those gates to me and explained the why they were called such. The ones we saw were wooden kissing gates. : )
Very unusual to me too.
I like it. I also adore the names of things there....Ballynally!
That's unusual...but very beautiful---a simple graphic photo. Diana
It looks complicated!
A kissing gate? That's not something I've seen before. In fact, the whole setup looks pretty elaborate. Nicely found and shot!
Why??? I've never seen one like that.
According to some comments, it is "a kissing gate." Perhaps I am a little dense, but I do not see the connection between the gate and the action. It suggests a revolving door more than anything else to me. I do like learning new things about other countries and customs. Now I am going to google this design to see if there is more information for inquiring minds!
I just found lots of links for a "kissing gate." Who knew??!!
