Are you interested in unsolved mysteries?

This very short video clip shows a rock feature that I came across some time ago while walking the Cork coast. It’s a vertical rock face about 3 metres high and 10 metres across. Dotted across its surface are large holes, so that it resembles a gigantic block of Swiss cheese.

I have no idea how these holes were formed. It is likely that this rock face was a horizontal sea bed some 350 million years ago and that it was impacted somehow by many pillow sized boulders. Evidence of these boulders is everywhere in this particular area. Was it a volcano? A tsunami? Or something far more mundane? Your guess is as good as mine.

I’m happy to show you this place, if you have a head for heights.
