Cliffs of Moher

I've looked at some stunning photos of the cliffs with people sitting with their legs dangling over and standing very close to the edge.

This got me thinking. Are there ever any accidents?

Sitting at the edge is impossible now at the actual cliffs complex as there are some lovely liscannor stone barriers.

And yes there have been some very sad events at the cliffs, as there are at all high locations unfortunately. But in respect for the families of those left behind, I don't think they should be discussed in a trivial manner.

Accidents and non accidents with missing and "found in a local bar" or the odd hoax thrown in.. Now the "new" path from Doolin to Liscannor has been revamped there are lots of places to dangle on the 6 mile route The fencing having been strategically placed on the land rather than sea side of the path..

The old path was, as I recall on the land rather than edge but Clare council have to keep the farmers happy. ;-)

When we were at Dun Aengus on Inishmore a couple of years ago, we saw a number of teenagers sitting on the edge of the cliff. I kept thinking that all it would take would be a "playful push" from an unthinking teen to send one of his/her friends off the side.
