An Bun Beag – is a small village in County Donegal with a beautiful and picturesque beach, but is known for the wreck of a fishing vessel that has been there since the 70’s.

Originally called “Cara na Mara” (Friend of the Sea), it was built in France and bought by a local fisherman named Eddie, which is why the locals call it Eddie’s boat.

For many years, the wreck is the favorite place of photographers from Mt. Errigal in the background and newlyweds who for nearly 40 years love to commemorate their big day by Eddie’s boat.

In 1985, the wreck gained worldwide fame when it appeared in the U2 video and since then there have been discussions about its delapadated state and errecting a monumnet instead

 

Really another amazing windfall for photographers!
