Hailing frtom Kilkenny and journeying back often, Geography in Ireland is not to be confused with what's taught in schools. '5 minutes down that road' can be several miles, 'a mile' can be 50 yards, likewise mountains are usually little more than hills, and cliffs any decent sized pile of rocks. So when place names are lauded in song, usually from emnotional or romantic reasons or both, they tend to assume a size and greatness, and beauty, often far beyond what the geographical eye might see. And a great thing it is, how duller would the songs sound if written by text book geography e.g
'Where those big mounds of Mourne sweep down to the sea'

'round the rocky little dunes on the hill near Doneen'

or
'in Dublin's traffic logged dirty city, where the girls are so gritty'

You get my drift

Rinevella bay, for example, right across the Shannon on this side (the Clare side) has the huge stumps of a medieval oak forest sitting in the tidal zone.

With regards to photographs, I have a number of pictures of the cliffs around Ballybunion, right down the coast and the Mouth of the Shannon down from BallyB.

Thee are loads of caves at sea-level and there's the Devil and the Devil's Footstool.

The pictures were all taken from a boat and from that angle I wouldn't be sure which would be the exact location of the spot described in the song.

I can put a few on-line for a while if you like, just so you can get the general feel of the area.

As you drive out of Ballybunion on the road to Beal, just where the Triple Road goes off to the right there is an ruined church. This was Doon church which stands on the cliffe of Doon.

In Ireland the suffix of "een" meening small is added to the end of a name as a sign of affectiion. For example Seaneen, Timeen (small Sean, small Tim). So the cliffs of Dooneen is a affectionit name for the cliffs of Doon.

By the way for all you Irish buffs, this church is named in the short story The Quiet Man from which the movie of the same name was made. The story of the Quiet man was set around Balybunion and in the area that the author Maurice Walsh was born. In the story he sees Mary Kate Danahur at Doon Church,

By the way Dooneen.com shows a photograph of Kilkee "from the north slopes of Kerry". This is absolutely false. The photograph is taken from Carrigaholt road just outside Kilkee and is a well known view to anyone local to the area. There is no way this photograph can be taken from anywhere in Kerry. Kilkee in all likelihood cannot be seen from anywhere in Kerry (even Mt. Brandon), since the town is at sea level and the southern side is obscured by the hills that form the Kilkee cliffs (approx 40m).

Yes, Dooneen Point, near Beal is the "location" of the song and
it would seem that cliffs are in fact a few rocks on a beach.
Has anyone got a link to any photograph of the location?

Hi. I found your Forum today and learned alot about one of my all-time favorite songs, "Cliffs of Dooneen", and the whereabouts of Dooneen and the cliffs of Moveen, too. Thanks! Great stuff!

Now, an aside to Henryetta (and any other curious folk):

I was told many years ago that the "Kil" in Irish town names means "church". In olden times, churches were of central importance to the existance, organization, and prosperity of towns. All birth, death, and marriage information was recorded and maintained by the local church. And, I imagine that this was also where town issues were presented and resolved, given the strength of the church at that time. So, it makes sense that the town names were, in essense, an acknowledgement that the church was the focal point of each community. To find the church was much the same as finding the town "center".

Thanks for letting me "chime in". BTW, who is this Arnie? ;-)

===== From Henryetta:
Now then. If 'Kill' is 'cell,' is Killarney the cell of Arnie? Norwegian monk who moved south?

The Cliffs of Donneen are in North Kerry on the Banks of the Shannon Estuary This is an explanation about the arguments on the song and location. I wrote this on another site
Well the words of the song were composed here on the Loop Head Peninsula. It was about the Cliffs of Moveen a local scenic spot just south west of Kilkee. There were many verses to song some now lost, maybe composed in late 1800's or early 1900's and good trad singers from the area were able to give the full version. Huge emigration from West Clare to England in the '40's '50's and 60's they brought the words with them. It was sung around London in those decades and cute Kerry h...r switched the word Moveen to Dooneen. Christy Moore must have come across the plagiarized version and had it on one of his early albums with Plaxnty in the '70s. As they say the rest is history. Cliffs of Dooneen are across in Kerry from Carrigaholt approx at the Mouth of the Shannon. The topography is right if The Cliffs of Moveen version is sung. You can see the Towns of Kilrush and Kilkee from Moveen not from Dooneen. You can't see Kilkee from Dooneen. One thing both places have in common is they rest on shale sandstone rock which is unique to the area, in that there are only two other places in the world where that particular rock is exposed above sea level. Geologists come from all over the world to study the rock in this area because of its accessibility especially those involved in the oil industry.
But if people want to believe that Cliffs of Dooneen are in Clare why not! There is enough of counties around us trying to claim bits of Co Clare. Up The Banner

The Cliffs of Dooneen

I have traveled afar from my own native home.
Away o'er the billows, away o'er the foam
I have seen many sights but no equal I've seen
To the old rocky slopes by the cliffs of Dooneen

I have seen many sights of Columbus fair land,
Africa and Asia so delightful and grand,
But dig me a grave were the grass it grows green
On the old rocky slopes by the cliffs of Dooneen.

How pleasant to walk on a fine summers day.
And to view the sweet cherries that will never decay,
Where the sea grass and seaweed and the old carrageen
All grow from the rocks by the cliffs of Dooneen.

The Sand hills of Beal are glorious and grand,
And the old castle ruins looking out on the strand,
Where the hares and the rabbits are there to be seen
Making holes for their homes by the cliffs of Dooneen.

I have tracked my love's footsteps to the boathouse of old
And the dance on the hillside where love stories are told,
Its there you will see both the lad and the colleen
Moving round by the shore of the cliffs of Dooneen

Take a view across the Shannon some sites you will see there
High rocky mountains on the south coast of Clare
The towns of Kilrush and Kilkee ever green
But theres none to compare with the cliffs of Dooneen

Farewell Dooneen, Farewell for a while,
And to those kind-Hearted neighbours that I left in the isle,
May my soul never rest till it's laid on the green
Near the old rocky slopes by the Cliffs of Dooneen

Big Tim,

I was sent the words by someone I don't know, through the internet. I've (today) asked them for more information, but similar verses have already been quoted here...

Oh, and by the way, I've stood at Dooneen Point with binoculars - you can make out the mouth of Kilrush Creek alright, though not the town itself, however Kilkee lies in a hollow and there are hills in between, so it isn't visible from there.

The only vantage point from which you can see all the sights described in the more usual versions of the song - "a view o'er the Shannon", "the high rocky mountains o'er the west coast of Clare", "the towns of Kilkee and Kilrush" and "the high rocky slopes round the cliffs" - is Moveen Hill (which is the view from the back of my house) and the spectacular cliffs beside it are at Doonaghboy.

Living in Kilkee and working in Kilrush, as well as having friends in North Kerry and knowing several people who sing the song, I've been curious about The Cliffs of Dooneen for some time myself.

Finally, I've recently been sent Jack McAuliffe's supposedly "original" words, which prove to be those of a significantly different "Kerry" version of the "Clare" song that most people are familiar with. Indeed, has anybody ever heard the McAuliffe version sung?

THE CLIFFS OF DOONEEN, by Jack McAuliffe:

Verse 1

I have travelled afar from my own native home.
Away o'er the billows, away o'er the foam
I have seen many sights but no equal I've seen
To the old rocky slopes by the cliffs of Dooneen.

Verse 2

I have seen many sights of Columbus fair land,
Africa and Egypt so Delightful and grand,
But dig me a grave were the grass it grows green
On the old rocky slopes by the cliffs of Dooneen.

Verse 3

How pleasant to walk on a fine summer's day,
And to view the sweet cherries that will never decay,
Where the seagrass and seaweed and the old carrageen
All grow from the rocks by the cliffs of Dooneen.

Verse 4

The Sandhills of Beal are glorious and grand,
And the old castle ruins looking out on the strand,
Where the hares and the rabbits are there to be seen
Making holes for their homes by the cliffs of Dooneen.

Verse 5

I have tracked my love's footsteps to the boathouse of old
And the dance on the hillside where love stories are told,
It's there you will see both the lad and the colleen
Moving round by the shore of the cliffs of Dooneen

Verse 6

Farewell Dooneen, Farewell for a while,
And to those kind-Hearted neighbours that I left in the isle,
Ma my soul never rest till it's laid on the green
Near the old rocky slopes by the Cliffs of Dooneen

Notice that these words make no claim to be able to see Kilrush, Kilkee or anywhere else in Clare, whilst all the places described in the usual version of the song can be seen from Moveen, outside Kilkee.
