The International Appalachian Trail of Ireland

The Irish leg of the International Appalachian Trail is in Donegal, and starts at Bunglass near Slieve League. This lovely video gives a great overview of the trail and what one can expect to see.

Rossnowlagh 1912

Anne McGinley, on Flickr.com, posted this photo taken by her Grand Uncle of Rossnowlagh beach in or around 1912. Anne's hoping someone may be able to identiy the event that was taking place.
From a glass negative captured by my Gr-Uncle. This picture intrigues me, The event may have been the finale of either an Orange Order or Ancient Order of Hibernians march from Ballintra. There has always been good relations in the community of this area so I am certain all neighbours were on the beach. Or it may have been an entirely different event. Any ideas?
If you know, leave a comment on Anne's Flickr page (click on the image): Rossnowlagh Beach or Belalt Strand circa 1912
