Valley of Darkness
A heavy cover of clouds and majestic mountains tower over one of the deepest lakes in Ireland, Doo Lough. Pronounced doo-lock and translating to dark lake, this valley in County Mayo was the site of tragedy in the mid-1800s during the Irish Potato Famine. These days, the lake serves as a fine source for spring salmon, grilse and sea trout.
