Killybegs is Ireland’s largest fishing port located in the waters of Donegal Bay.
Now that is a fascinating mural...and a fun look back in history although I'm thinking there's some mythology in this story. :)
I hope losing his hand was worth it.
I see you've been visiting the Newtownards Road area for this Ulster myth and mural!Great shot of the terraced housing and the Shipyard H&W behind!

...a troubled past.
A horrified way to conquer a land....:(
A remarkable fact.
Looks like the same story of Antwerp in Belgium. Saying in a kind of dutch "hand werpen" or throwing a hand cut from the giant Druon Antigoon who asked toll for using the harbor in roman times. The legionair Silvius Brabo did it after a fight and threw it in the river Schelde. His name is also used to give his name to the province Brabant.
Belfast has some amazing murals.
That was sacrifice for a cause!

It's always nice to win but that's a wee bit extreme hey Bill 😀
Holy cow....that's a bit of history I had never heard before!
That's rather different as history goes!
Wow, I didn't know that, thanks for sharing it!
That is a new story to me!
Interesting! I guess swimming wasn't an option...
Interesting story for me!
History on the wall! Lovely frame!
Now that's a gory bit of history.
Yikes, that's quite a tale. Did they mean to write "cutting ofter?f" instead of "of?' Or maybe this is a regional usage? Either way, the Red Hand of Ulster would give most folks reason to pause and think. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.
That should be "cutting off." I blame auto correct. haha.
Politics were intense, even back then! Great post.
Talk about focused on the task at hand!Very interesting.
