TRAVEL / IRELAND
ISLAND OF THE WHITE COW
Inishbofin (Irish: Inis Bó Finne) is a small island off the coast of Connemara, located only 1,5 hours west of Galway City, Ireland. This island honestly is true haven and perfect escape from hustle & bustle of modern cities. But shhhhhh
There are several legends concerning the origins of the island's name. According to one legend, the island was actually a floating place until some fishermen landed on it in a fog. By bringing fire onto the island, they dispelled the magic. They then saw an old woman driving a white cow, which turned into a rock when the woman struck it with a stick.
