On the cover of her 1993 CD Solid Ground, Dolores Keane is pictured with a lake behind her, predominantly featuring a large rockslide. Can anyone tell me what/where this location is?

Possibly the Silent Valley Reservoire in The Mourne Mountains - that certainly has spectacular views.

It wouldn't be a reference to The Moorlough Shore, as in her earlier Lion in a Cage album?

There are literally thousands of lakes like that around the country, unless someone really familiar with the area can positively identify a feature of the scene in the photograph I would say you have set us an almost impossible task. An e-mail to the photographer is probably the best solution.

Thanks for the responses. I rather thought the spectacular rockslide would be a recognizable distinguishing feature, but perhaps that's common.

Well, here's hoping someone might come along and say "oh yes that's Loch so-and-so, we go camping there every year."

OK, I'll give it a shot then. Lough Tay on the Guinnes' estate, Luggala in Co. Wicklow?

Peter, you nailed it. The Wikipedia photo of Lough Tay shows that it is without a doubt the location shown on the CD cover.

Thank you very much!

Scree. The "rockslide" is called scree.

Peter, I looked at Ireland's Lough Tay on Google Earth, and I think you are exactly right. The dam to the north, the gray slope on the west side contiguous to the dam, the vegetated slope behind Dolores and the rocks she sits on - all there.

Well, I can't see the actual rock she sits on, but there is an access track on the east side where the picture was probably taken.

Good spotting.
